New Life Yarn by The Unusual Pear

These one-of-a-kind handspun yarns have been thoughtfully made with yarn and roving trimmings I have collected over the last 5 years from my hand woven pieces, workshops, yarn ball ends and failed projects. My yarn trimming bags were well and truly overflowing with little bits of glorious natural fibres that I have saved from going into landfill. 

I have given these trimmings a New Life by hand carding them together with my Wild Drum Carder and then spinning them on my Electric Spinning Wheel to create these truly unique and wonderful yarns. 

Want me to spin your scraps? I now offer a scrap spinning service where you can send me your yarn trimmings and I will give them a New Life and spin them into beautiful yarns for you. Click here for more info.
