I have used old yarn like that to knit lap blankets for nursing home residents out of it. You can mix & match all different colors in the same blanket. As long as you use acrylic yarn to make it easier to wash/dry, the ones I've made have been well received.

The ones I knit usually end up being 36" long and 25" wide.

Of the ones I could see it looks like there's a lot of acrylic, but it's hard to tell. When you get to organizing I suggest one of the first things you do is sort by fiber as much as you can. Put them in bags or containers and label them inside and out. That will be important when you go to knit stuff.

I have a small one of the drawer things, too. Those are great and the bigger size would help a lot with organizing!
