Wednesday’s Finds for Froggers and Felters
A trip to the Salvation Army yesterday yielded some good frogging and felting finds. I was in such a rush, two of my picks turned out to be not so good for frogging and ended up on eBay straight away. If you want to take a peek, you can see them here and here. The rest are here for your perusal until Sunday when they’ll go up for bidding. Take a look at the beauties below and click on the images if you want to learn more!
All Rewind yarns come from gently used sweaters purchased from the Salvation Army. The sweaters are carefully washed and dried before they are unraveled. They are then wound into center-pull skeins. These skeins are superior to those you find in stores because they stay put while you knit and are much less prone to tangling.
Some crafters prefer their recycled yarn to be straightened before they use it. This way, they can see what the finished product will look like as they knit. Those who knit with un-straightened yarn will notice a slight wave in the stitches, but this is easily removed the first time the project is washed.
You can either purchase the sweaters on this site for $1.99 – $2.49, or get the recycled yarn for $11.99 – $12.49. If you would like your yarn straightened and dried in the fresh Cape Cod air we have here, the total cost is $24.99 – $27.99.
