This yarn made from recycled jeans (post consumer) is unusually soft and the touch resembles a mixture of bourette silk and wool. The colour range is narrow and that is done on purpose: We stuck to the original colours of the jeans and didn't apply another chemical process by bleaching it and dying in different colours. The Polyester part of the yarn is made from recycled PET bottles. The raw material is sourced in India, where the yarn is spun by the same father-and-son owned company that produces Reborn Wool for us.
