I’ve decided to name all the recycled yarn I have, because it’s annoying always having to say “some green cotton stuff” instead of “mystical mountain breeze” or something.

David SuzukiDavid Suzuki is the world’s coolest / hottest* environmentalist, so I’m naming this first yarn after him. It’s the colour of the earth, for one. It also looks a lot like Noro and he’s Japanese, so I think it fits. I’m not sure how happy he’d be that it’s 85% petroleum-based, but I think he’d forgive me, seeing as I am recycling the yarn. All those Owl magazines have had an effect on me after all.

Stats!

Fibre content: 85% acrylic, 15% wool
Care instructions: machine wash cold.
Purchased at: Value Village
Price: $4
Weight: I should buy a scale so I can measure how heavy it is.
Plans for the yarn: I’d like to make a few striped scarves with it, along the same vein as the scarf by brooklyntweed. A few garter stitch scarves could also be really nice. The yarn is very similar to Noro, so any pattern meant for Noro could fit here.

Here it is unravelling…

* Pardon me for objectifying one of the most important Canadians of our time; I tend to find intelligent people totally H.O.T.T.**.

** I was just looking for a picture of David Suzuki and discovered that Jay Ingram (of Daily Planet fame) hosted Quirks and Quarks between Suzuki and Bob MacDonald. It turns out Jay was also totally hot back then, OMG.
