Reduce, reuse, recycle.
How are you greening your knitting? Reducing doesn’t seem like much fun, and reusing generally means you’ve had to rip out a failing project, a painful part of any knitter’s process. Enter Remix, a 100% recycled Berroco yarn made using a low-impact manufacturing process patented in France. Remix was the result of over a year of collaborative work between mill and textile engineers, and after a number of years of enduring popularity, we added a lighter weight version to the line.
How is it made?
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.
Made from 100% recycled fibers(Nylon, Acrylic, Cotton, Silk, Linen), this machine washable yarn is an exciting all season blend that is comfortable in every way.
