I have heard similar comments ever since I was really little (I learned the craft pretty early). It always made me laugh because I noticed that the people who would tend to make these comments did not know how to crochet or knit themselves. Oh how jealousy reveals itself...  Tongue

The yarn in first photo is a hunk of the pre cut stuff... I just couldn't fit the whole length on the scanner. I scanned them straight through my computer because I don't have a camera. After your suggestions I did the burn test and found that it smell almost like hair when it's burned. No embers, no plastic smell. I added another small pic to show that it does indeed have 3 ply's and comes apart. It feels a bit like wool. I found this yarn in ziploc bags that were placed in a large bag of misc. yarns. I am starting to think I got a better deal than I originally thought.

Melladh: do you think it might work for a matt is in rug hooking?...That might be an awesome project, since I have never done that before.

ph33lth3lov3[/color]: Now that you mention it, it would be awesome doll hair. The colors I got are incredible. 5 different shades of red, 6 pink and hues of purples. You both gave me some cool ideas. I think i might even try tassles.

Thank you both!! Grin

Hey all!
Yesterday I purchased a huge bag of yarn while thrifting. I was kinda jipped cause when I went through the bag at home, there were several ziploc bags of yarn that were nothing more then yarn cut into 2 feet segments. Cool colors... but why the heck were they cut this short? I wondered if they were used for some type of hooking or something. Does anyone have any ideas?

Oh yeah, I know most of the thrift stores are manned by volunteers but gees...why do some of these workers get away with treating people like pooh? The old women are crusty at our local thrift stores. If it was not for the fact that I can find some great deals I would not shop there anymore. Anyone else experience crustiness from the thrift shops you go to?
