Green Your Crafting: Earth-Friendly Fibers

Yarn Crafting is a great way to build community, revitalize seemingly useless items, and encourage creativity. This week’s tips will help you keep your crafting from harming our environment.

Tip #2: Fabric Designs

If you’re into fiber crafting, try yarn made of organic merino wool, hemp, or soy for your knitted and crocheted creations. Raid your closet; you can turn old jeans into a potholder, a T-shirt into a pillow, or a sweatshirt into a tote.

Tell us: What's your favorite eco-friendly fabric?
