2 sweaters into plenty of yarn to unravel, dye and knit again

Went shopping and brough back 2 very large sweaters, none of them I would even wear.

Yes, I don't buy any sweater any more, only if I can reuse the yarn later.
I like to buy sweaters from expensive stores at 80% off and unravel the yarn.

I look for 
- good quality sweaters
- dk weight yarn are my favorite 
- no surger finish, like in this picture otherwise it will be a torture to unravel
- merino blend, 100% is the best but it is hard to find so the highest % is the best

Once you have the right sweater, you just have to find the right threat and pull. 
It will easily separate all parts of the sweater

Once you have your sweater in a few pieces, you can star to unravel
Note thar you usually start to unravel at the top of each pieces not at the ribbing

Little by little make it into a ball

And soon you will a few balls of great yarn

Next we will see how to color, untangle and finally knit it in a new project...
