Do you unravel old sweaters for their yarn?
I recently decided to try recycling a few thrift store sweaters, and I've gotta say, I'm loving it. How else can you get 1500+ yards of wool or cotton (or cashmere!) yarn for $1.50-$3?
Has anyone in the forums been adventurous enough to unravel a fingering or lace weight sweater?
I want to try it, but I'm afraid of constantly breaking the yarn, making it impossible to get a decent amount of yarn without a bunch of knots every few yards.
Also, is cashmere hard to unravel?
I found a BEAUTIFUL beige 100% cashmere sweater for just $3!!! but it's a Large, and definitely doesn't fit me, so I want to unravel it and make a smaller sweater and possibly a hat or gloves etc.
Sorry for such a long post, I just have so many questions. hahah
