What is exactly this #6 plastic? All I can seem to find is #1. Can this be used to make the heat shrink jewelry also?

Plastic #6 can be used for heat shrink jewelry (here is an instuctable about it www.instructables.com/id/Doodle-Earrings-Jewelry-Charms-by-Recycling-6-p/ )  it is often found in take out containers, though I don't think it is used that much anymore since it is hard to recycle.
