VIDEO: How-To Make Newspaper Yarn

August 26, 2010, 22:48 pm  Posted by Craft Your Life Team


Recently I’ve been getting e-mails asking if I’ll be teaching my AwareKnits Eco-Yarn class– where I walk students through making different yarns out of alternative materials, including newspaper– anytime soon again. Unfortunately, time doesn’t allow for me to teach live classes these days, but thanks to the magic of digital cameras I can provide a little how-to goodness to you virtually. So join me this week; hit the recycle bin, and click on the video (below) to learn how to spin old paper into new yarn.

Oh, and once you’ve spun 20 yards or so, give knitting it a try with my Extra! Eco frame pattern. Happy recycling!
