These slider-top re-closable clear plastic bags have nearly endless applications. For us, they are our go-to bulk yarn and garment storage workhorses! They're also great for storing craft supplies, decorations, and seasonal supplies.
While at Twisted we generally eschew plastic when possible, it's single-use plastic that is the real environmental party pooper - and with normal use these sturdy 3 mil bags can last for years. The slider top is quick and easy to use, and helps to hold the bag open for one-handed loading. Most of the time, this 16"x16" is big enough to store a sweater's worth of yarn, or a sweater.
Plastic bags aren't the right way to store yarn and finished objects for every person or house or climate, but they're a good option to have in your arsenal. Mesh bags can also be a nice storage solution and, either way, cedar blocks and cedar oil (put a drop on a swatch then store that with the yarn or garments) may help encourage bugs to look elsewhere.
Made of 100% virgin low density polyethylene (LDPE) resin, these bags meet FDA/USDA specifications. We do not sell them intending they be used for food, though.
Bags are not guaranteed to be 100% air or water tight, though when properly sealed they may be close. As such, like all plastic bags, these are a choking hazard and should be kept away from children and pets. The plastic slider is removable and so it is also a choking hazard. Basically everything in the world is a choking hazard.
YARN NOT INCLUDED. Some photos show bags with yarn or other items inside to offer a sense of scale and possible use. By purchasing this item you will get the BAG ONLY.
