The coloured bits in Tweedy are our own hand-dyed waste - the ties that we take off the hand dyed skeins. We save them very diligently and it's a total labour of love!
We have been collecting the ties for a while and I finally found a mill that could process these, which means re-carding them, blending and spinning into yarn again. We now blend our own waste with waste sent from our lovely customers that we collect through our recycling initiative.
We are always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and to minimise waste. On top of thread waste we are using recycled wool, making 50% of the total content recycled. I love the result! It's soft, yet wooly. Not superwash and it blooms beautifully after washing. 230m/100g.
