I find it immensely satisfying to be able to use up all the parts of the supplies I'm using for a project, whether it's taking the leftover broccoli stalks from a stir-fry and using them in soup, or taking the whey from a batch of cheese and using it to water my plants...or adding it to soup. I guess soup is kind of a catch-all. But one thing I don't put in my soup is the little bits and pieces of scrap yarn that is generated from all the winding we do here.
You know, when we're setting up the machine to wind your yarn and snip off the ends of the strands so they're all even? Or when we're using the yarn balance to figure out how many yards per pound your custom blend is and trim it down to the balance point? Yep, we save all those little scraps and over time we accumulate enough to fill dozens of little 4-ounce baggies for you to use in other creative ways -- as stuffing for pillows or toy animals, as hair on a homemade doll, in collages, added to your spinning...
These are grab bags and full of surprises -- they may contain any fiber from acrylic to bamboo to wool to silk, some in long segments and some in short snippets. We just put out a new batch today at the store, and they're also available in the online shop.
Tell us what YOU like to use them for!
