I'm excited to start carrying Eco-Cotton, a yarn recycled from textile waste. The leftovers from garment production are usually bound for the landfill. Instead, they are shredded and spun into this yarn. No dye is added--the color of the yarn is the color of the original textile.
Eco-Cotton works well in the cut pile tufting machine (AK-I) and the loop pile tufting machine (AK-II) as well as the industrial machines. It's also great for macrame, knitting and other crafts.
