The next time you get ready to throw out a tee shirt think about making it into yarn that can be used in many projects, everything from crochet to weaving! I happily accept unwanted shirts and if you are in the Florida panhandle and want the yarn but don’t want to do it yourself, I also will process yarn for customers.
Tee shirt yarn is so easy to make and a great way to #recycle #upcycle old tees that have holes or stains, is outdated, or maybe you are just tired of that tee shirt. You can make thick yarn or thin yarn, that is determined by how thin you cut the strips.
Below is a gallery of how-to make tee yarn. See a slide show on my YouTube Channel and excuse YouTube did not keep my slides in order I set in upload so the slide is not in the order of procedure. I can’t figure out how to reorder the pictures in the YouTube video manager, please excuse. Below the video are pictures listed in the order of procedure.
One tee shirt makes between 15 and 25 yards of yarn depending on size of tee and how wide strips are cut.
I want to thank Sara Adams of Navarre Florida for the great big bag of Tee Shirts!
I will be using the tee shirts to make yarn for rag rug projects.
