Yarn: Eco Friendly, Organic & Affordable

I’m slowly inching, or chaining, rather, my way to buying organic, eco-friendly yarns to go along with the green transformation I’ve made in our house. But I have a mound of yarn that isn’t being so nice to Mother Earth to finish first. Just doesn’t seem green to throw it all away and buy more now does it? Once I work my way through all this yarn, I’m really excited to buy more from these companies who have the most affordable green yarn on the market, because going green does not have to ruin the green in your wallet! (This is not a paid promotion and is 100% my opinion!)
