What in the world is Tarn? well, I am about to explain it 🙂
Tarn is the name given to the yarn you get when you cut cloth or t-shirts into strips. This yarn is thicker and stronger than regular bulky yarn.
Because you can cut the strips yourself, you decide if you need either thin, medium or a thick yarn. Tarn is very versatile and it is used to create a lot of nice projects.
Tarn is especially suited for rugs in high traffic areas where you need beauty and strength 🙂
Tarn can be used when you need a nice texture to contrast against a smooth texture like a sofa, or any where you want to put it…It Fits!!
My RR is made of 100% recycled material, my tarn is made of old bed sheets, t-shirts, sweaters, etc but the best tarn I like to work with is t-shirts made of a blend between cotton and polyester or lycra, these gives a nice elasticity to the tarn.

So, make your own or buy it, you will be happy you did.
