Get Rid of Your Scrap Yarn And Feel Good About It!

Posted By TNNA Editor, Tuesday, September 11, 2018

As a needlearts professional, you are definitely using your fair share of yarn, but that means you are also generating a lot of scrap yarn and yarn that you may have bought with the intention of using, but has just sat in a basket. Luckily, there are some ways you can get rid of your scraps and feel good about it!

Donate It

There are numerous places that can benefit from your old scraps of yarn - and get great use out of it. Think about your local schools, art centers and senior homes as viable options. These places in particular may not have it in their budget to provide a ton of art supplies. Your scraps of yarn can be turned into beautiful art and also work in conjunction with various art therapy programs within senior homes. 

Sell It

Do you have an extremely rare type or color of yarn that you know is valuable to other needlearts professionals? Think about selling your scraps of high-end yarn on Etsy, eBay or Craigslist. Be sure to include the dye lot in your posts though. You may have the exact skein someone needs to complete a project. 

Swap It

Make your scraps into a social gathering. Hosting a swap night is the perfect way to ensure your extra yarn will be put to good use, and may also help you obtain your friend's beautiful skein you've been eyeing for the past few months. If you're really trying to clean up your yarn stash, you can host but just give away rather than take any yourself.
