Rule #1 - Never pass an op shop without checking what is inside....
Rule #2 - Use your imagination when assessing potential treasure....
What can it be used for?
Can it be fixed?
What would it be worth if.......?
Do I need it? Not really but it is too good to leave behind.
Rule #3 - Patience and perseverance pays dividends.......(not much else does at the moment!)
Two hours of television watching, and some gentle unravelling produces this - 30 skeins of 6 yards each of Bunka yarn - rayon knitted crepe thread made in Japan, and initially part of a needlepunch kit. Obviously the person who owned it previously got fed up with the tedium of needlepunching and threw it all out - fabric, yarns, two bent needlepunch tools and the frame to which the design had been pinned. The yarn is fairly thick, shiny and slippery, so in fact was quite easy to separate. Not sure how it will be used, but I'm sure I shall find a use.
