Then I got bogged down, so while this post is dated for the 8th I wrote it a week late (my bad you guys!) But not to worry it was well worth the wait!
*You want clean bags! This can be easily accomplished by cleaning them (and I'm sure you may feel silly while washing a plastic bag) because you don't want a gross, sticky mess.
*Whenever I make plarn I shoot for about 25 bags, this yields with my method about 80-90 yards and around 2.5-3.0 oz (varies with exact type of bag). How many you want to include in your skein is entirely up to you - but remember more = more work...
*As with any project having all of your supplies and tools at the ready makes everything go smoother!
*Making plarn is not something to rush. It is in fact rather time consuming depending on your volume and not for the faint of spirit.
*Remember while handling plarn that it is in fact plastic. Unspun it tears easily and while it has little elasticity, pulling on spun plarn (just like regular yarn) can mis-shape your strand.
*And finally, there are other ways to make plarn, I am just detailing the way that I choose to do it. If you find a way that works better by all means use it! <3
So your next step is to have your materials ready. For our plarn making adventure the absolutely necessary tools are very simple. I'm including some additional optional ones for some advanced techniques in plarn-making but they are by no means extremely necessary!
