Retwisst Recycled T-Shirt Yarn

Retwisst Recycled T-Shirt Yarn

T-shirt yarn has got to be one of the most asked for yarns over our decade in business. We've had jersey before, and I've loved it, but this is something else! It's thicker and chunkier and RECYCLED!!! Which just fits everything that I am about at the minute! You can knit with it, or crochet with it, or indeed macrame or weave with it - really anything you like. It's smooth and sturdy. I think most people will be thinking bags and baskets but rugs would be great too and actually, what about overwise, lacey cardi type things?

I really need to you read this bit! Because it's recycled there's no standard colour - you can sort of see that in the pictures I think - so if you choose green, you could get a light minty green, a bright apple green or maybe a smokey bayleaf. We don't get to choose either, we get what we're given. We haven't got the capacity to keep an eye on all the individual variations on this website (roll on the new one!) so if you need a specific shade or want to discuss what's actually in stock, give us a ring on (0115) 9474239 but otherwise, it's a magical mystery tour! Because it's recycled from textile waste there's no extra chemical or water processing involved and you're keeping that out of landfill too so you're really doing your bit!
