  • This yarn is so so surprisingly lovely to work with!

    Made with actual recycled jeans (post consumer), this fabulous yarn is unusually soft and handles like a mixture bourette silk and wool.

    The colour range is deliberately narrow to reduce chemical processing (dyeing it would require bleaching + chemicals dyes). But we really like the colours it's available in. They pair beautifully with other neutrals and brights alike!

    The 25% polyester component is made from recycled PET bottles, taking them out of landfills and using them beneficially to make this yarn stronger and more even.

    The raw material is sourced in India, where the yarn is spun by a father-and-son owned company where a lot of surplus textiles exist that can be used for this yarn.

    Machine washable at 30C. 
    And: Just like with real Jeans, this yarn may bleed...

    So almost ten years ago, she started having producers spin distinct fibres into interesting, yet classic yarns at competitive prices.

    Today the range of Kremke Soul Wool comprises various very different yarns, from organic hand spun, hand-dyed cotton from Peru to recycled Cashmere from Italy...
