I made this in order to keep a record of all the various types of yarn I have :)
Print it out a couple times, tape a small bit of your yarn to the left hand side and fill out the details on the right. Then pop everything in a folder, and you'll never have to worry about losing the band on the yarn and never being able to find the same type of yarn in the store, like I used to do @___@
In the notes section you can write where you bought it and whatever you think about the yarn...like 'OMG THIS YARN IS TOTALLY AWESOME TO WORK WITH!' ^___^
I welcome any and all feedback on this, like if you think i've missed any details and whatnot ^^

Such a great idea. This is way better than what i do xD I staple a strip of the yarn to the label i have them all in a small bag but is chaos for me when i want to find the right label xD

yes it is. I plan on making one for the various "skins" I have for my plushies so I can keep better track of what the fabric is and where I got it! :)

Oh my gosh. You are a saint. I mean, I will never do this, because I know I'll never be able to keep it up, or consult it... But all my respect goes to you. :worship:

Oh i started this a few years back, and totally forgot about it, so I know what you mean xD but now my stash is much larger and I recently decided to sort it all out - bought some large plastic boxes, and a yarn winder - and thought I might as well update my folder as I go along :D

i know! i wish i thought of it by myself, but I vaguely remember seeing something like this a few years ago, and now that my stash is much larger, i thought i'd make my own version :D

Very clever! I had a small notebook with a crocheted chain of each type inside for the longest time, this sounds much better for organizing. XD
I'll be sure to link my crocheting relatives and friends to this though!
