Upcycled Yarn on Etsycomments (5) August 28th, 2008
Jessica Mattingly likes the challenge of working with something different, and she definitely succeeds with her amazing recycled yarns. Read this interview with Jessica on MKCarrol's blog, then check out her etsy shop for unique handspun creations. I love that she actually spins the plastic and paper into yarn (rather than just cutting the strips) because it seems like it would be a lot easier to work with. She even offers a plarn (plastic yarn) making service where you send her your plastic bags and she'll transform them into plarn at the rate of $.20 per yard, and she'll throw your old mix tapes into the skein for free. This is eco-crafting at its best!
