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 is 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.

This recycled cotton is also available in a 3mm size which makes it great for macrame, rug weaving and weaving on a frame loom.
