»»» PERSONALITY Soft, bulky, chunky, thick, bouncy, squishy, and kinda fuzzy. This yarn, harvested from a discarded sweater, has acrylic for easy care and wearability, wool for warmth and comfort, and rayon* makes it soft and cozy.
* Why we love the fiber known as Viscose or Rayon: Rayon was the world's first man-made fiber, intended as an economical silk alternative (so it's really soft but very weak), and is made from natural cellulose-based materials like wood pulp, grasses, cotton, and bamboo. Though man-made, it's not a synthetic material like polyester or acrylic. It's actually natural ingredients re-made into something new, which is why we hold a certain fondness for the Viscose/Rayon fiber.
»»» DETAILS There are 6 skeins available in this lot, EACH SOLD SEPARATELY. → Available as a hank or center-pull cake. You can specify which type you prefer in the comments box during checkout or contact us within 4 hours of purchase.
»»» PROCESSING We run a professional operation and use the most effective and efficient methods available to us, with as little waste as possible. All of our yarns are 100% recycled & reclaimed; usually from discarded sweaters. The cleaning process varies with different fibers, but only natural soaps and softeners are used. Unlike many other yarn recyclers, we take the time to steam-treat all of our yarns with professional-grade equipment. The dry steam not only straightens the yarn to its original form by removing the kink, it also adds a finishing touch - like breathing the life back into it; returning the yarn to a state that is ready for knitting, crocheting, weaving, and any other creative purpose that brings you joy!
»»» FULL DISCLOSURE → The pictures are intended to provide you with a good idea of what the yarn really looks like, but they may not accurately represent the details that the written description provides. Please read all of the information provided in the description before purchasing and contact us if you have any questions. The crochet hook pictured is a 5.5mm (which may not be the recommended hook size for this yarn) and is there to give you an idea of the yarn's scale. → Due to the nature of the source of these yarns, joining yarn ends is inevitable. There are two yarn join methods that we use: ♥ Russian join - suitable for lofty/bulky yarns ♥ Magic/Invisible knot - suitable for thinner yarns, looser twist, and fewer plies. ♥ Wet Splice - only used in yarns with a fiber content that has ≥50% wool. All three joining methods are secure, neat, and lay subtly into your handiwork. You may find that one of your skeins of yarn has one or two joining knots and the other skein from the same lot has none. We always try to replace any knots that were placed by the original manufacturer, which once laid unobtrusively in the original sweater, with one of our invisible methods; but, please understand that the occasional knot may slip past unnoticed. We do our utmost to prevent any knots when possible; but, preserving as much good, useable yarn as we can is the priority and that requires the occasional need to join a few loose ends. And, remember - if you'd rather join your yarn a different way, you can always cut the knot out. (We won't be offended.)
