What You'll Need To Take When Yarn Bombing

Here's a list of things you'll need to take when yarn bombing...

1. Scissors
Take a little pair of scissors with you to cut your yarn, cable ties etc.

2. Needles
Needles to sew the tag to the object. Larger needles will be easier for threading the yarn.

3. Cable ties
These are good if you're not sewing your piece or if you're wanting extra security for the tag, or to attach your calling cards.

4. Yarn bomb piece
The piece that you want to show off to the world.

5. Calling Card
The business cards or labels that you want to attach to your tag.

6. Extra yarn
You'll be surprised at how many times you don't bring along extra yarn and run out.

7. Camera
For proof that you've done your yarn bombing.

  1. thx this is probably the best graffiti ever made.

  2. doesn't the wool rot over a short time due to rain

  3. Most yarn bombers use acrylic yarn as it last longer, doesn't rot and doesn't damage the item it's attached to. I've had pieces that have stayed up for 2 years and still look the same as when I installed them.

  4. I am president of a crochet club in a rural town in Southern Illinois. We get all types of weather here. What is the best way to weatherproof our bombings?
