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.

Remix Light uses a soft, comfortable blend of nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk and linen. A tweedy, rustic look makes this yarn ideal for casual knits, and its machine washability means any garment will be low maintenance and hard-wearing.
