As part of a catalogue, I got samples of their different colors (about 60) in cashmere yarn. For each color, there is about 4 threads of yarn, each about 1.5 inch long. Is there ANYTHING I could do with these? They are so pretty, and I'd hate for cashmere to go to waste...
Thank you, everyone!

You could do a latch hook rug, though it would be pretty small - you probably don't have enough pieces of wool. A latch hook coaster, maybe?  Smiley

You could make pom poms from them, or use them for needlefelting, or sew them on to something, or just tie them on stuff.

Thanks for these ideas, but they seem to be above my level of skills besides the pompom...
I think that one's easy, and I'll look that up.

Thanks for that idea, except my craft skills are rather limited...no dolls, at least!

Well, what exactly CAN/DO you do? I mean, what are your interests? I would save them and use them for scrapbooking or borders for something...There's not a lot of material there (provided you might have a lot of IT, just not a lot in consecutive color..) Definitly don't throw it away though!!!

Well, my idea wouldn't actually waste them, but you wouldn't be using them...

You could put them in a mesh bag and hang the bag outside during nesting season. Birds will come along and grab the strands to use in their nests. A friend of mine puts out her yarn scraps and her husband always made fun of her...until he found a nest that was interwoven with the colorful strands of yarn (and he even said, "I guess you were right!").

Felt them to each other end to end and knit/crochet something with it!

You could use sewing thread and sew through the middle of each peice leaving a gap of 1-2 inches. Then you could wind it with a ball of yarn to use or if you spin you could ply it with something.
