My crappy yarn




My friend Betty is very frugal. She encourages me to get the most use out of my fiber, including that which I would normally throw away. I decided to save my 'second' cuts which is mostly the matted lower portion of the rabbits and spin it into what I will now call 'crappy yarn.' Turns out, this could be my new favorite yarn! It has a lot of character since it is thick and thin in various spots and it spun up very quickly. Pictured is 160 yards waiting to be washed and dyed.

Looks good to me. What color are you going to dye it? Have you thought about painting it?
