We have heard so much recently about the amount of clothing and textile waste that goes to landfill each year, it makes perfect sense to recycle fibres so the they can be re-used to make new clothing.

This has several advantages.

Firstly and most obviously, if fibres are being recycled, they are not going to landfill! Hurray!!

But there is far more to the story than that...

Wool, cotton and other fibres go through a host of polluting processes and use large volumes of water in order that they be turned into yarns that can be woven or knitted. Many of these processes don't need to be repeated on fibres that are to be regenerated, thus saving water, and drastically reducing pollution.

A complete Life Cycle Analysis measuring the environmental impact of each stage of the manufacture of our sustainable recycled yarns show them to have 98% less environmental impact than an equivalent yarn made from virgin fibres! They have been independently tested in accordance with stringent standards laid down by the ISO (, and have been awarded ISO 14040/14044.
