Recycled Yarn

I’ve never really thought about how much waste we create with clothes – but I’ve started to. There’s an Etsy vendor called The Frogger Niagara who recycles pure wool clothing from 2nd hand shops, and sells the yarn once it’s cleaned. I’ve made a few purchases from her now, and the yarn is lovely to work with and is typically a sort of luxury fiber that I wouldn’t be able to regularly afford. Pictured above is 50% wool, 40% angora, 10% nylon in sport weight. I’ve also purchased some lace weight from her in cashmere, and while I don’t have any projects in mind for them yet, I can’t wait to knit it up – so soft!
