Handspun Newspaper Yarn

I am sharing an article by Doug Gunzelmann of Green Upgrader for making yarn out of paper.  The items needed are newspaper, scossors and a spindle.  I love to recycle whenever possible and think this is a great use for discarded paper.  Also try other materials like magazine pages, paper bags and  wrapping paper.  A poster commented a suggestion; "If you don't have a spindle for twisting the newspaper an electric hand mixer or an old fashioned mixer works.  Just twist the end of the paper around ONE of the beaters...keep cranking or running them till you finish."  Full instructions with images are at the link below.
