Reclaimed heathered lilac

In the past, I have bought reclaimed yarn on Etsy. Now I'm going about doing it on my own. Time consuming but a really great way to get wool or cotton cheaply. And it keeps it out of the landfill.

While this was a very nicely made handknit vest, the shape was just a bit boxy. I fell in love with the heathered lilac color and had at one point planned on felting it. 

Instead, I set about unraveling the yarn to reuse in my own crochet projects. Some sections pulled apart easily while others were much more difficult. Definitely worth my time though. Now to decide what to make with it.
