Made from recycled plastic floral netting, these sleeves keep your yarn balls nice and tidy. They stretch to accommodate many sizes of yarn balls (say up to roughly 150 grams or so) while allowing free movement when you pull the yarn out from a center pull ball.
Each package contains 10 approximately 4.5-6" long sleeves. Most are white, but they come in all sorts of colors. The exact size and colors vary because they are recycled so we never know exactly what we'll get! Yarn is not included.
We partner with an awesome independent local florist just down the street from our office to create these.
Our friends at Broadway Floral receive these fine plastic mesh tubes with their wholesale flower orders, where they're used to protect large, delicate flower buds in transit. But, like so many of us, they hated the waste of single-use plastic. So they generously save the sleeves for us, then our staff members carefully clean and trim each one.
Is it more labor-intensive than buying a bajillion yard roll of mesh new? Yes, sure. But we love keeping perfectly useful essentially brand new things like this out of the landfill!
