The Recycled Yarn from We Are Knitters is composed of 95% recycled cotton and 5% other recycled fibers. It comes in a 100g skein and comes in different colors, all with an interesting rustic look.
The yarn itself is strong and durable, yet soft and pleasant to the touch. It is great for light summer wearables as well as bags and accessories.

Over the past few years, the world is experiencing a tremendous growth in its awareness towards recycling and sustainability, and the yarn and fiber industries are changing and evolving accordingly. This results in a wave of new fibers and fiber blends, which are made out of different recycled and upcycled materials. Some are different recycled textiles and some are completely different material, which are recycled to be made into yarn.
Innovations in production process and the rise in demand for organic-based yarns fuel the growth of this new market.
