This DK weight wool-free yarn from Berroco is made of 100% recycled fibers using a low-impact manufacturing process patented in France. Garments and high-quality commercially knit fabric panels left over from the ready-to-wear industry are collected from across Europe and sorted by fiber, then color. Because these pieces are pre-dyed, there is no need to dye them again, which saves water and prevents water pollution. Instead, colors are created by carefully blending garnetted fibers. Garnetted fiber is the result of shredding old textiles to make a new, fleece-like fiber that is ready to be spun into a new yarn.
Remix Light uses a soft, comfortable blend of nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk and linen. A tweedy, rustic look makes these yarns ideal candidates for casual knits, and their machine washability means any garment will be low maintenance and hard-wearing. Finished garments are immediately cozy, with the feeling of well-loved jeans or your favorite old tee-shirt.
