Had the link to this thread in favorites, noticed I hadnt even commented on it!!!  ooops  Sorry!  I love working with plarn and  using the lids is a fantastic idea!!   You mentioned "harn" (hosiery),  I have lots saved to use for something, I would cut in loops in loop together.  Anyway, my question is,  it doesnt  "run" when cut ?

To make hosiery yarn, I would cut them in one strand using a spiral pattern.  Your loops would be too small even when stretched.  Re the runs, they wouldn't show when crocheted.  I never thought of using harn and I seldom wear pantyhose anymore, but it seems like a good idea to use up your pantyhose with rips in them.
