Yarn and Tyvek
On a quick trip to Job Lot (for those of you who don't know this is a store that sells remaindered goods at cheap prices) I picked up these two skeins of yarn. I have no idea what I will do with them. I do not use fiber other than in making paper which I'm not doing right now. But we will see.
Did you know that these post office issued mailing envelopes are made of Tyvek? I learned this on the Art Tour last Friday. The quilt woman uses them to wrap many layers of cloth in, then she sews the cloth with her industrial sewing machine, then she dyes the cloth and comes out with a wonderful pattern made by the threads which she removes. If that makes any sense.
Also, not sure what blog it was but scrolling someone's blog I noted they listed Tyvek as a material used in a fabric collage. So, since these are free, I picked up a couple to see how and if they might be used.
