Plarn is a marvelous way of recycling plastics, from grocery bags to cassette tape! The name comes from the amalgamation of "plastic" and "yarn." It has become increasing popular because it is a 'green' craft, reusing materials that are normally thrown away. It is inexpensive because the materials are free and it requires little preparation to produce great materials to work with.
Plarn is also a great material because it is water-proof, light-weight, and strong.
