What does one make with such thick and lumpy yarn?
Similar things to other yarns.
People always mention rugs first, IDK why, that's an insult in my mind. Why would you want something you put so much effort into to be used to wipe filthy shoes or feet on? :hide

Evidently they are thoughtless idiots.

What comes to my mind is a bulky crochet sweater. I bet it would be WARM!

Rugs should use yarn that is rough or scratchy. If your yarn is soft, I would think it would be great for sweater or blanket. Or a shawl. There's lots of things you can make with chunky yarn.

It has a poke to it, but I'm not overly sensitive like many are, so it doesn't bother me. And as outerwear, it should be fine, sweaters aren't usually turtlenecks. Lol

I wonder if I'll have enough to make a realistic sized blanket out of it. Stores carry tiny ones that hardly cover anything and always such horribly thin material. Everything is so craptastically and cheaply made these days.
