Kremke Reborn Jeans
This yarn made from recycled jeans (post consumer) is unusually soft and the touch resembles a mixture of bourette silk and wool. The colour range is narrow deliberately: Kremke have stuck to the original colors of the jeans so they didn't have to apply another chemical process by bleaching and dyeing it.
The polyester part of the yarn is made from recycled PET bottles. The raw material is sourced in India, where the yarn is spun by the same father-and-son owned company that produces the entire Reborn range. The dyes used are free of animal derivatives so that this yarn can be called truly vegan!!!
Caution: The knitted garment grows a little bit after washing. Please make sure to wash your swatch before measuring your gauge.Also, just like with real jeans, this yarn may bleed so make sure you wash separately till you know it will no longer bleed.
Please note: This item comes as a skein. You will need to 'ball it up' before you knit with it. If you don't know how to do this, please watch the tutorial video first - otherwise you will be spending hours untangling it!
