This unique yarn is recycled fabric from the t-shirt industry- as such the thickness, length, and colour of the yarn vary.

IF YOU ORDER MORE THAN ONE WE’LL TRY TO GET THEM MATCHING BUT OBVS NOT GUARANTEED, WE’LL LET YOU KNOW EITHER WAY.
T-shirt yarn works well crocheted or knitted tightly for baskets, bags, and other homeware, but I could also be made into super-chunky garments with an unusual texture. It’s also great for an inexpensive introduction to macrame. You won’t be about to brush it out, but you can use it to practice your knots and get some really pretty shapes going.
We know you don’t wanna hear this, but you really do need to test swatch this- even if you’ve used it before, even if you know what you’re doing. The last thing you want is a floppy basket or a jumper so still you can’t move your arms.
