I love to crochet and am on a limited income. How can I get free yarn?

You can ask on Freecycle or Craigslist. You can also get yarn very cheaply at estate sales.

Good advice. I buy scarves and afghans all year and "frog" them, because you "rip it rip it rip it". Cute, huh? Then I make cat mats for the local shelters.

You can also go to the same thrift stores and often find big bags with yarn in balls or even still in the skeins for dirt cheap. Also, go onto Craigslist into arts and crafts and put in yarn. Some sell it for low prices if you come to their home or meet them at a public place.
I hope these help.

I'm on limited a income and wanted to know where can I get free yarn. I find crochet helps with my anxiety disorders.


I would gladly accept any yarn given to me; I live in Woodlandpark, Colorado.

I live in Woodland Park, too. No, really.

So, here's what you do: Get on Woodland Park Community Page on Facebook.
If they ignore you I can recommend you since I'm on the page.

You can ask there if anyone has extra yarn. I'll bet you'll get a lot.

There is also the Woodland Park Buy and Sell page where you can make your request. I'm also a member of that group.

Let me know if there is a problem getting on either page.
