I know a good amount of people recycle yarn for various things, and I thought it might be neat if we did an exchange of some of the yarns we've collected. Some fibres, it seems, seem to be easier to get ahold of in different cities. I, for example, nearly always seem to find angora, but rarely to I get my hands on cashmere. Some people, however, seem to find nothing but cashmere!

I thought it might be fun to organize a recycled yarn swap, just so we can broaden our yarn horizons and play with some new fibres. Anyone interested in this?

Sure, as long as sign-up goes past the 25th - my one-month date. We get a ton of generic "wool" but also a decent chunk of shetland. A little angora, and sometimes some off-the-wall silk or linen blends.

Well, unless I get some more interest, I think this swap idea may be kinda pointless. Unless we make it a personal swap or something.
