Yearn Worthy Yarn: 2nd Time Cotton
No matter the project you’re working on there are always scraps. Scraps of paper, scraps of fabric, scraps of yarn; you name the craft and you got yourself scraps. Where do most of your scraps end up?
Well not these scraps.
2nd Time Cotton is a yarn that is made from cotton scraps from the garment industry. Composed of 75% reclaimed cotton and 25% acrylic, the cotton is bright, fun and most importantly it gets the scraps off the cutting room floor and into your crafty hands. Just think, with each skein of this yarn, you are helping divert the destined for landfill cotton, into a new life as hat, mitten, scarf or sweater.
You can buy 2nd Time Cotton directly from Knit One, Crochet Two along with many patterns and accessories.
Bet you’ll now think twice before tossing your scraps out.
