Recently I was looking through some shops on Etsy when I came across a shop selling art yarn and ribbon bundles. They looked so lovely. I was really taken with them and thought it was a good way of using up some of my stash. (The Etsy shop that gave me the idea was based somewhere in Europe so I wouldn’t be taking any of her business.)
The art yarn and ribbon bundles consist of handspun and hand dyed yarns, hand painted recycled sari silk, lace, burlap ribbon, eyelash yarn and organza ribbon. They can be used for so many different things: Crafts such as collage, felting, scrapbooking, embroidery, embellishing, tassle making, braiding, card making, toy making, spinning, crochet, knitting, weaving, jewellery making and many others. They would be excellent for stylish gift wrapping. The colour coordinating fibres in each bundle can be used all together or in any combination.
They look so gorgeous wound up together, though, that you might just want to look at them.
I had a lot of fun choosing the colours and textures for each bundle and I’m really pleased with the results. However, they were far more time consuming than I had imagined, so I probably won’t be making up any more. There are just two of each bundle in five different colour schemes. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
You can find them in the Art Yarn/ Ribbon Bundles section in my Etsy shop.
