Recycled 4mm Cotton String - (4mm) 500g Cone [Discontinued]

Thick Recycled Yarn

Looking for a thick yarn for your macrame, weaving or crochet project that has been given a second shot at life? This 4mm single twist string is calling.

At 4mm in diameter, this recycled cotton string yarn from Ada Fibres is soft, has a tweedy personality and is just waiting to be made into a project that can say it's made a difference and has a story to tell.

The recycled string is available on 500g recycled cones (+/- 25g) and measures approximately 150m/ cone (30m/100g). The WPI is 6 and we would recommend a 10 DPI reed if you are using a rigid heddle loom.

What is recycled cotton and how is it made?

The recycled cotton weaving yarn from Ada Fibres is made from approximately 50% fabric waste from European fashion houses, 25% mill ends from spinning mills and 25% polyester fibres which give the respun yarn strength.  As a percentage of this yarn is recycled fashion stock, the colours are sorted and will vary between lots.  The mixture between the recycled fabrics and spun dyed yarns gives this yarn its unique tweedy finish. 

Please note that we have tried to capture the colours as best we can however colours may vary from that shown on your screen.  There is a long lead time to manufacture and transport this yarn, as such back-orders will not be available for this line.  Make sure you get enough yarn to finish your project and weave your way.
