So, I'm a crazy person who's wanted to spin something really, really strange for awhile now (especially considering my local wool mill burned down before I ever had the chance to visit it; the sheep at Belle Vallee Wools were fine, it was the mill itself that burned). I made myself a cute random scrappy art yarn that I wear as a necklace, but I want something REALLY weird.

I asked for and received some awesomely weird... stuff in a swap. I'm talking about the plastic raffia and that metallic green stuff.

So what the heck do I do with it??? I mean, I'm at a loss! Would it be best to core-spin it onto pencil roving, or would wool yarn be ok? What other things should I combine it with? Keep it man-made, or add some natural elements?

Or am I just over-thinking this whole thing? Tongue

You know, I sent some stuff like that in a swap one time hoping to see how ZombieQueen would interpret it into something spun, and I never saw! I don't know if she even spun it up, :/ I'd be excited to see what you make with it, though, even if I can't help you.

I'm contemplating "tailspinning" it onto some wool roving, but I'm wondering if I need a third strange substance...
