Have you had a chance to try our wonderful, new yarn ReCreate yet?

We are very excited about this yarn because it is made entirely from recycled, upcycled and reused fibres.  The wool and acrylic are recovered from garments that would have otherwise gone to landfill and the polyester component comes from recycled bottles.  Yes! Bottles!  They are shredded and then spun into yarn.

If you think this would make the yarn a little harsh, you needn’t worry. The blend is beautifully soft with a lovely bounce to it and is great for both knit and crochet.

We are dedicated to adding yarns to our collections that have less of an impact on the environment, so we only work with expert spinners. The company that makes ReCreate for us work to the Global Recycled Standard, which monitors the entire production cycle from collection to reclamation and finally production to make sure the materials used are traceable and are recycled to a very high standard and no chemicals that are harmful to the environment are used.

ReCreate comes in a classic palette of eight colours (Ecru, Rose, Cherry, Dijon, Smoke, Sky, Ink and Charcoal) and features in a collection of easy-to-wear garments including this season’s must-have slipover and on-trend fuller sleeves with cable, lace and Fair Isle to tempt you.  Why not grab some balls to try today.
