This is your approaching-cold weather reminder that yarn bombing your neighborhood causes litter, can be troublesome for wildlife, and often under-payed municipal workers are forced to clean it up.
If you have that much yarn to use on things you’re not keeping or selling, use it to make scarves, hats, mittens, socks, etc. to donate to local people in need.
The yarn bombing that I’ve participated in has always been to raise awareness about a local issue, to make a statement about society and the world around us. It’s a lot like street art , and most people who do yarn-bomb (that I personally know) use all-natural fibers, like wool or cotton. We are also very particular about not leaving trimmings for the birds to use in nests, or yarn-bombing in a park. I have only yarn-bombed in extremely urban, public places.
For the acrylic yarn that I knit with, or any other unnatural (nylon, PTD, etc.) fibers, I do knit for local charities. I also donate yarn squares that I’ve knitted via Knit-A-Square.
People, such as myself, that do not have the aesthetic of typical street art, have to make due with what talents we currently have. However, if you have never yarn-bombed before, don’t do it for fun or ‘just because’, do it with a purpose in teaching or raising awareness for something. Use all-natural materials that can withstand weather so that it does not harbor germs or mold, and always, always, always pick up your trimmings.
