Use Clear Newspaper Bags for Yarn

I use the plastic bags that my newspaper is delivered in when knitting or crocheting. I place a skein or ball of yarn inside to keep it clean and free from snarling. They are clear bags in my locality and easy to see through to choose the color I need. I also use them to save leftover yarn for easy visibility.

Using clear Newspaper sleeves is a wonderful way to keep your yarn clean. I don't receive the daily newspaper and when I knit or crochet I use a gallon size zipper storage bag or freezer bag. The newspaper sleeves actually are the better buy, they are for "Free", but for those who don't receive the newspaper the clear zipper storage bags work well for keeping your yarn clean and for me I just keep reusing them, over and over again.

Have a great day,
