Definition Of Plarn

Plarn is yarn made from plastic bags. If you own a collection of plastic bags, and I know you do…. then making plarn is very simple and quick to ‘manufacture.’ Once you create the plarn, there are many fun and upcycle projects any knitter, crocheter or DIY er can make.

Although plarn does not garner an entry in Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, technically plarn is defined as plastic yarn.
