Hand-Braided Rope Bracelet made from Yarn Baseball Windings - Choose Your Style - Washington State University - NCAA Baseball
These hand-braided rope bracelets are made with hand-dyed wool yarn from inside an official NCAA baseball that was found behind Bailey-Brayton Field on the Washington State University campus in Pullman, WA in May of 2019.
The baseball was found on a non-game-day and the wear on it (the Pac12 logo is mostly worn-off) suggests it was probably a practice ball.
