Well, now I have even more upcycled yarn to show you! I sadly forgot to take a photo of the sweater before it was unraveled, but it was a XL men's sweater and according to the tag the fiber content was 100% lambs wool. I payed a little over $3.00 for it.
I have my mother to thank for the unraveling this time as well (thank you!), she just does such a great job of it and she likes to work on these kinds of projects during trips.
I decided not to ply the yarn because I liked how it looked as a 2 ply yarn. I'm not sure how much I have here because I don't have a scale and I'm too lazy to measure the yardage, but I would guess that I have at least 800 yards of DK weight yarn.
My mother would like for me to knit her a sweater from this yarn, but before I do that, I plan on dyeing it a more pleasant brown. So yet again, another successful upcycling project (and believe me, I have more where this came from!).
