All you need to know about our Second Life
Wonderfully soft yarn can be made from old plastic bottles? For sure! Here comes the proof! We are blown away by this yarn made from 86% recycled polyethylene terephthalate – i.e. from old PET bottles – which has won us over in every way possible.
Number 1: The sustainable yarn is cuddly soft and very comfortable to wear – without scratching.
Number 2: Our Second Life universal yarn shines with all its fantastic nuances. From pastel shades to vibrant colours and earthy tones. This colour palette is a real eye-catcher. And best of all: every one of these shades can be wonderfully combined with each other.
Number 3: Second Life is a yarn for the ages! That’s because, with its unique durability, it lasts endlessly. Without pilling – and without annoying nodules!
Number 4: Sustainability! Every minute, a truckload of plastic waste ends up in the sea. Incredibly sad, but unfortunately true. Our Second Life sustainable yarn fights against this terrible trend and breathes a second life into used plastic bottles. Incredibly valuable, incredibly environmentally conscious!
