It's a curse and a blessing, living with a fiber enthusiast. On the one hand, I get to learn neat facts about things like forage-able fibers and retting. On the other hand, I get covered in blue dryer lint. Hiss.
In case you're wondering, yes, you can spin dryer lint. The more salient and probably more important questions is SHOULD YOU. If you like things like--oh, I don't know--breathing, then probably not. Watch the short to see why.
The part where it took a minute to figure out tension? Cool. Some days are like that. The chonky looking yarn. It's art, right? But THERE! In the second image. Do you see the giant fluffy clumps drifting off of the line. In the words of the unfortunate Romans in Asterix the Gaul, Aieeee.
The fluffles got everywhere. They multiplied like tribbles. They floated through the air. The landed on the furniture. It now looks like an episode of Stranger Things meets a haunted house in my front room. Okay, so maybe not quite that bad. Let's scale back to just a haunted house. But I still ended up coughing from sheer fluffle invasion.
Experiment conclusion: grudging pass. It did TECHNICALLY work, as demonstrated by the lovely knit square. However, and here enters the grudging part, I'm not sure it should.
What I want to know now is whether or not that little knitting square would felt together if we put it back through the washer. Ah, the circle of life.
