Lab fee: $10.00
__About 10-15 yards of waste yarn (worsted-weight acrylic works best)
__Cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll
__2 brown paper grocery bags
__Yarns from your stash (or new from the market). Bring about 500 yards of yarn in a combination of weights, sport to worsted that have a smooth (not hairy) finish in colors that will work together. Some ribbon or ladder yarn can be added to the mix. The mixture of yarns will be used for the warp (lengthwise) yarns. This should include at least 200 yards for the weft (or cross threads) in one solid color that blends with the other colors for the weft or cross threads. The warp yarns should be smooth, at least 2 ply (no single ply), non-hairy, and strong enough to stand tugging with your hands.
