Recycled Cotton

Spun from soft recycled cotton, this yarn is perfect for baby clothes, lightweight garments, and even washcloths. Made from cotton fabric pieces that would otherwise be discarded when fabric is cut to produce tee-shirts, our Recycled Cotton yarn reduces waste and conserves resources. These clippings are sorted by color, minimizing the amount of dyeing needed for the final yarn. The sorted cotton fiber is then blended with acrylic for enhanced performance. We have created exclusive shades by blending colors to create beautiful, unique heathers and tweeds.
