This video is a real life saver if you want to make your own t-shirt yarn! I love how she uses a pill bottle when winding the yarn so it's easy to pull the yarn from the center as you're working with it. Now I need to go through some old t-shirts and make stuff!

Informative. I have come across similar method and also some of the folks are also having course of T-shirt specific designs and productions. For those who sell on etsy this is a good video worth watching.
What an ingenious way! I've never made my own t-shirt yarn but I can see how easy it is honestly & could be extremely beneficial. For those who have made your own yarn, what have you made with it? Do you combine different t-shirts to have a unique effect?
