Yarn Made From Plastic Bottles

Published On May 19, 2010 | By Jo Hensen | Uncategorized

Caron, a yarn company, has a really cool product that is helping reduce the waste from plastic bottles. Their Simply Soft Eco yarn is a blended yarn that is 80% regular yarn material and 20% specially processed fiber produced from recycled plastic bottles!  The yarn even has a special quality – some of the dark color yarn actually has unique white flecks dispersed throughout the yarn aka the result of the plastic bottles. They claim that every 10 balls of yarn (or skein for those in the knitting know) saves 6 plastic bottles from the trash.  With sales so far, Caron has saved almost 1.5million plastic bottles from landfills! Check out more here – Caron
