Blood Money

How about a little spinning? On Saturday I decided to spin up the Saint & Sinners blood money batt I bought at Wholly Craft last summer. I have to admit that spinning those pieces of paper into the yarn was such a pain that I only spun them into one of the plies. I also decided to felt the yarn a bit when setting it to assure that those little strips don't come flying out of the yarn.


Name: Blood Money

Yardage: 70yds, 2-ply
Fiber Content: Colonial and handdyed humane wool from a shelter, shredded US currency, and a bit of sparkle (unlabeled but probably Angelina)

yes, that currency IS a major pain to spin, but oh the results!!! I sold so many money yarns, people love them!
And I think your yarn is fantastic!
