Item details

This watermelon colored yarn is proof that cotton can be soft - when mixed with cashmere! I don't normally recycle cotton, but it is a great yarn for warmer weather, and the cashmere gives it a more luxurious feel.

Watermelon red/pink 85% cotton, 15% cashmere yarn
2 ply light fingering weight
18 wpi
Hand Wash Cold. Lay flat to dry. Cool Iron

Skeins available are listed below. Yardage is approximate (and is usually underestimated so that if there is an error, you get more than is listed here), the weight is accurate. I actually found two of the exact same sweaters, so there is a lot of this yarn. If you're planning a project, I'd suggest you purchase yarn all from sweater A or all from sweater B to make sure that colors match (you know what they say about buying all of your yarn from one dye lot...). I can't tell the difference between them by eye, but there might be a slight difference once knit together.

Sweater A
104 grams; 409 yards
60 grams; 236 yards
57 grams; 224 yards
52 grams; 204 yards
50 grams; 196 yards
43 grams; 169 yards

Sweater B
111 grams; 436 yards
62 grams; 244 yards
61 grams; 240 yards
60 grams; 236 yards
55 grams; 216 yards
50 grams; 196 yards
14 grams; 55 yards

I prefer not to join yarns since everyone has their own favorite way of making joins. As a result my skeins may be a bit smaller than those found elsewhere, but this gives you the chance to do your own joins, and to also purchase exactly the amount of yarn that you want. In addition, there are often small amounts of yarn that are not worth listing for sale. I will often include some of this extra yarn in with your purchase so that you have a bit extra to work with (just in case...).

I carefully select sweaters and gently pull them apart to reclaim the yarn. After taking the sweater apart, I wind the yarn, wash it in a mild detergent, and gently dry it. I can also wind the yarn into a center pull ball if you prefer - just send me a message to let me know you'd like me to do this before sending the yarn out. If you have severe allergies, reclaimed yarn might not be right for you. My home is smoke free, but cat friendly, and I do not know the history of the yarn before I purchased it.

Recycling yarn is a great way to get high quality yarn for your knitting/crocheting needs without the high price tag associated with new yarn. I started doing this as a more affordable way to feed my own knitting habit. I hope that you will enjoy this yarn, and share pictures after you have refashioned it into something new!
