How To Reuse Your Tails!

By Tiff //

You know the feeling, you've just finished making your chunky and luxurious Plump & Co blanket, this time in the snowy white 2 ply yarn. A few months ago though you came into the same problem when you were making those scarfs for your sister and mum in our Limited Edition Grapefruit 1 ply yarn. So you cast off and realise there's a decent tail of yarn left over, but not enough to make another scarf or beanie, so you throw it in your basket and await your next delivery of yarn you ordered.

Well friends  - I'm here to show you what you can do with those ends to make sure they don't eventually go in the trash when you do your annual spring clean. We are passionate about reusing and recycling here at Plump & Co with the help of our chief enviro queen - Briar, she is always reminding and encouraging all of us to be more aware of how our every day choices can and will affect the environment. Her enthusiasm is so inspiring and together we should do all we can to help look after our planet.

So here are some fun ways you can get a little creative with your odd ends to make sure nothing is wasted!

Julia from @studiohome's key chain sitting pretty but we are also inspired by her pompom chain, why not try making little pom poms out of our yarn to have a slightly more chunky but similar effect!

We hope you found a cute way to reuse your tails, or maybe it helped spark another idea that you could do with them, make sure you share your creations with us, send them through to tiff@plumpandco.com
