Playing with plastic on my loom

I had this great idea to try to weave an all plastic rug, with recycled plastic, that my local grocery store has been saving for me, from their deliveries. Shrink wrap... it is not great to use for a warp, too sticky, sticks to the loom, to itself, to each other. I had the hardest time winding this little warp onto my loom. Torturous, right from the start. I will post some photos today of the bit of progress I have made weaving. I know already in this little experiment that I have made my strands too thin, it is not as heavy as I would have liked.
