Some may think that this is a bit on the bizarre side but when you live on a fixed income (like me), your "stash money" needs to stretch as far as possible.
I go to different resale shops (mainly Salvation Army and Goodwill Industries) and buy sweaters in all sizes, regardless of gender. They get a real good washing and then I unravel them and use the yarn for the charity projects that I work on. Once in awhile, I get lucky and find a sweater that is wool or a good wool blend.
So, in essence, I'm donating twice and nobody can tell that the yarn has been recycled. YAY!!
