This yarn is created by plying upcycled yarn (pieces of discarded, unwanted yarn, kept intact) with a handspun yarn single made from 100% recycled yarn scraps (manually recycled into fluff and spun back into a brand new yarn).
This yarn is called “Alien” because the most outrageous, shinny, faux fur, fluffy, fabric’y pieces of yarn were used in making it. It is full of little knots, texture, randomness and color. Such yarn could be used in truly extraordinary pieces of weaving, knitting, crochet or other crafts. It is very interesting to work with, as random order of everchanging colors and textures keeps you entertain and excite you with an anticipation of what’s to come.
Due to recycled and upcycled nature of this yarn, it is impossible to tell what is the exact content, weight or color of it. It could be worked using 6-10 mm needles and hooks, as it is rather chunky.
The complete weight of this one of a kind skein is 118 g ( a little over 4.2 oz)
