I needed to make some plarn the other day to make more Yoga Mat Straps and thought it would be awesome share how I make plarn. There are a few different methods but this one is my favourite way. It’s especially a good method for getting a somewhat consistent ‘weight’ of plarn. In this tutorial I’m using milk bags because they are stronger then a lot of other bags, but lighter bags are fine too.
One thing I forgot to mention in my steps was that I washed and dried the milk bags before starting. I don’t think you’d need to that with most bags, but the milk bags were smelly from milk leaks and whatever. So washing them seemed like a good idea.
I’ve also created a pdf here if you want to download these instructions.
