100% recycled (48% cotton / 47% polyester / 5% other). The Eco Jeans yarn is recycled yarn made of 48% cotton and 47% polyester and 5% other material. The yarn is recycled from jeans and used plastic bottles. Worn jeans, jackets and other articles of jeans fabric will get a new life. This would make a nice weft yarn paired with Venne's 8/2 organic cotton.
In using the yarn we have found it surprisingly soft and absorbent!
This is a 12/2 NM (European sizing), it is a little bit thicker than 8/2 cotton.
