Plarn???!

I recently ordered some PLARN (recycled plastic yarn) from JesSpins. You send her the raw materials -- I sent plastic grocery bags; plastic mesh from clementines, avocados, and onions; an old cassette tape; etc -- and she spins them up. You pay by the yard -- mine worked out to be 99 yards.

I should receive it next week sometime. I'm looking forward to playing with it... and I promise to have Show & Tell once I've got something completed.

Please tell me what you are going to do with your plarn - a shopping bag? I am enthralled!

A shopping bag is a great idea!

I'm going to make some upcycled papier mache bowls and use the plarn as decoration. But that'll only use a little bit, so I'll have to figure out how else I want to use it.

That spun plarn material looks cool. I wish I knew how to do that. I've been thinking of trying it but I have so many unfinished things already that I really shouldn't. Merry Christmas!
