A contribution to the Slow Fashion Movement: Our recycled wool consists of 65% recycled wool, combined with 35% other fibers, mainly also from recycled materials like PET bottles.
The important factor of recycled materials is that the used textiles don't travel around the globe before they get recycled. This is why we buy this yarn from a family owned mill in India, where a lot of surplus textiles exist that can be used for this yarn.
The touch of the yarn is nice, soft and woolly and not at all artificial. The colors look very natural and some have a kind of tweed effect. The thickness and character of the yarn makes it very easy to knit with.
It is durable, pilling-free and perfectly suitable for garments that you want to stay in shape.
