From shirts to yarn

Well I went beyond the shirt to yarn. This takes a lot more time but well worth it when I see the finished product. The first set of 7 is a cotton yarn that has been dyed. This is a long process as it requires the dye to set for 12-24 hours and then the drying process can take 1 to 2 days.

The picture of the 9 skeins are where I did 2 skeins of wool. Totally differant dying process but same amount of time for the drying process. You know you can't stick these in the dryer right?
And the best part is they are one of a kind. I couldn't duplicate these if I tried.
Now do I sell them or do I keep them


  1. crochet it cost 20 cents to find outI think it's wonderful aren't there vegan green people who appreciate this artform/
    I appreciate it but I do not crochet or knit. It's beautiful try.

  2. These yarns are beautiful. I would love to see how they work up.

  3. How do you make yarn from a tshirt?
    I am curious about this whole processes.
