Unraveling sweaters for yarn


New Member
I've seen a lot of people who do this and then re-use the yarn to make blankets or other items. It makes sense, but I am not sure how to do this properly. I tried to unravel a sweater once for this purpose, but the yarn was so crinkled, it made it very difficult to work with. Is there a trick to this that I don't know about?

This is the first I have ever heard of this. I wouldn't have thought of doing it either until I read this. I wonder how you would unravel it without it being out of shape.

Just unravel the sweater and wrap the yarn in a ball. Leave the ball for a week or so and it should be straightened out enough to reuse. It's a good idea especially if the color is one you really like.
