How to Make T-Shirt Yarn: New One Minute Video


We interrupt Refashion Runway Season Five to bring you this special announcement:

If you been inspired by the creative and talented designers from Refashion Runway and would like to try some refashioning yourself, but you’re not sure where to start, making t-shirt yarn might be just the ticket.

Instead of throwing away all those old, unwanted t-shirts, turn them into yarn. It’s easy, it’s fast, it’s fun and it’s one more way to join the zero-waste movement. Use t-shirt yarn just like you would any other yarn — you can crochet, knit, make rugs, macrame, make pompoms, wall hangings or even make some tassels with it. If you don’t have any old t-shirts at home, check out your local thrift shop — there are mountains of t-shirts hanging around, in every color, just begging to be used and kept out of the landfills.

    Does the t-shirt fabric dye easily? I’d like to use the fabric, but I don’t have nice bright t-shirts to cut up.

    thank you! I enjoy your posts, so much! I was wondering if there are ways to make socks into yarn? I hate to throw ones with holes or missing a mate away. I even wondered if they could be sewn together, as is, for a quilt?
    Thank you for the creativity you share.
