T-Shirt Yarn

I’m exploring use of a different type of yarn: upcycled t-shirts. I accept unwanted t-shirts from friends and family, cut them into strips, stretch the strips, and splice them together into usable lengths. Although it is labour intensive, I try to use as much of each shirt as possible - the waste from one shirt fits into the palm of my hand! This yarn can be used for all sorts of things; so far I’ve tried baskets and mats, but there will be more to come.
