Thick Thin 100% Cotton Hunter Green Heavy Lace Weight Yarn. Perfect for baby and child projects. Thick & Thin adds character. Knit crochet
Thick and Thin
I adore texture in this yarn! The thick and thin nature provides so much character to a finished piece. This sweater came apart in small pieces. As a result, this yarn is a bargain for someone who doesn't mind adding a new ball of yarn every so often.
About the color: It is a hunter green. My computer makes it look blue. The green has blue in it, but it truly is a green. I think the close up picture of the texture reflects the color most accurately.
At 21 wraps per inch This is officially a heavy lace weight, but just eyeballing it I would call it fingering.
Suggested uses- Knitting, crocheting, macrame, rug making and weaving. It is strong enough for a warp.

What to expect from yarn recycled from a sweater (please read!):
* The yardage is manually counted. To account for errors I have deducted my totals by 5%. This way I don't over promise on yardage. You will be getting the yardage listed and then some.
* Washing- I wash and rinse the yarn several times. I use tea tree and lavender oils for their antimicrobial properties. I also use added lanolin in the rinse water for wool yarn. Years of wearing and dry cleaning strips the wool of this natural softening oil. You may notice a slight tea tree or lanolin smell remaining. I am very sensitive to smells and nether of these bother me. If you are worried, please convo me. I will happily rinse the yarn several more times before shipping if needed.
* Hanging- Once rinsed the yarn is hung to dry in a shady spot in my yard. I do not weight the skeins to maintain the yarn's loft and bounce. As a result the yarn likely have subtle kinks that remain after being knit. This will not affect the usefulness of the yarn
*Some commercially knit yarn can be a little weaker than what you may be used to. This won't be a problem unless you are planning on using this yarn under high tension. I have made a note of the yarn's strength in the description. I am glad to send you more information including a pull test video if you'd like!
* Manufacturers join new a new cone of yarn with small knots. If I come across a knot sometimes I will leave it in the skein. I have noted these knots above. I can, however, miss a know. I try very hard to find them all but please understand that you may find one unexpectedly. The knots are usually tiny and were never noticeable in the finished knit sweater.
The small print:
I have a cat. No dogs and no smoking. The cat is kept away from the yarn
