About our yarn
Our yarns are made from unused fabrics left over from the textile industry and would have otherwise gone into land-fill. Instead they have been re-purposed and made into lovely, soft and very versatile crafting yarn, originating from Turkey. By using T-shirt, Ribbon, Pouf rope Yarn , Big and Little Cotton, you are helping the environment!
Each T-shirt yarn bobbin weighs between approximately 600-800gms. The length varies between 100-140 metres. Due to the recycled nature of this product, the colour and thickness can vary significantly. Imperfections, knots and join stitching are a common feature in all bobbins.
Each Ribbon yarn bobbin weighs approximately 250gms. The length is approximately 130 metres. It is made from 100% recycled materials, 80% of which is cotton.
