The Unfabricate Zine: a Handbook for Unravelling Thrifted Things Into Yarn

One of the early parts of the Unfabricate project was making a zine. I didn’t really finish the zine until recently, but here it is: a PDF version for BROWSER and a PDF version for printing as a BOOKLET (CONTENTS and COVER, paper size is 8.5 x 11”). Print yourself a copy and take it to the thrift store. Have fun.
