Made from Tencel Lyocell, Recycled Wool, Recycled Acrylic & 100% PET Recycled Polyester.
Wool and acrylic yarns are obtained from recycled clothing, knits and unused fabric offcuts from the fashion industry. Different fibres are extracted from mixed compositions, the repurposed yarns are then blended together and spun into new fibres ready to be woven.
The Tencel lyocell is sourced from FSC (Forest Stewardship Certified) eucalyptus trees and can be used in place of other regenerated cellulose fibres such as viscose rayon. Using a sustainable manufacturing process, wood chips are made which are then broken down into pulp, turned into Tencel fibre and spun into yarn.
The benefits of using Tencel lyocell include the traceable and sustainable origin of the wood pulp, and the use of non-toxic chemicals and solvents in the fibre processing.
The polyester is sourced from recycled plastic bottles. The bottles are ground down to produce PET polyester (polyethylene terephthalate), this is then melted to produce filaments which are then spun into yarn.
