PAPER YARN MADE FROM NEWSPAPERS
“Old newspapers are spun into yarn. This technique has an ancient tradition, which originally stems from Japan, where hand made Washi paper is used to make yarn. Although used newspaper is a cheap material, due to its characteristic thinness it is perfect to be spun into yarn. The newspaper is cut into 1 – 4 cm wide strips, which are, by use of self-made glue, joined into long panels, which are spun into paper yarn”.
Great idea to use this type of yarn as a DIY project
