Newspaper Can Make Good Yarn Too

Imagine yourself one relaxing cold winter night in front of the fireplace. Your newspaper logs burn brilliantly in the fire. Your hot cup of organic chocolate coco cools down next to you on your favorite recycled wood end-table as you sit back and crochet your new rug out of newspaper yarn for your bamboo floor.

Newspaper yarn? Newspaper yarn is exactly what it sounds like. It is a yarn made of newspaper. The genius behind this innovative product is Greetje van Tiem from Eindhoven Academy who created it for a school project. She calls her project Indruk.

Newspaper Yarn can be can be woven into carpets, curtains and upholstery. About twenty yards of yarn can be made from each newspaper page according to the inventor and if you look closely you can still see some letters.

Isn’t it amazing what newspaper can be turned into these days? What do you think?
