New yarns and products are constantly hitting the market, and here at Patternworks, our goal is to always bring you the very best of what’s out there. That’s why, when one of our employees was hit by a brilliant idea, we wasted no time in making that idea a reality!
It was a Tuesday evening warmed by tumbled bath towels, the air scented by dryer sheets. Our valued employee, arms-deep in her dryer, thought, “Well hello, what have we been thinking?! Throwing away clean, fluffy, high-quality dryer lint? Where’s our sense of reduce, recycle, and reuse? Or how about the age-old motto of handi-crafters: use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without? I say ‘No more!’ No more shall we waste this abundantly useful commodity!”
With this revelation, she went to her spinning wheel, and spun away into the wee hours of the morning. She came into work the next day, a little disheveled, but with a gleam in her eye and 435 yards of expertly-spun dryer-lint magnificence.
Not wanting to pass up this revolutionary opportunity, we rallied the troops, and encouraged everyone to begin bringing in all of their precious, underutilized dryer lint. We would put it to good use!
And that’s pretty much the story of how this astounding new product came to be. What started as a flash of inspiration is now a reality, and it can be yours!
Purchase your very own 145 yard (50 gram) skein of high-quality, hand-spun, dk-weight, mountain-rain-scented dryer lint yarn. Since each load of clothes is unique, so is every batch of yarn, so let us surprise you with a one-of-a-kind skein! (Fiber content and colors will vary. Most skeins will be at least 95% cotton, and could also include warm and cozy pet fur, hair, or other materials. These additional fibers only serve to enhance the quality of the yarn.)
