We have crafted with The Billie System on a unique winter eco-friendly yarn with a low environmental impact that can cater to a wide variety of projects and skill levels.
Our Interstellar range is a fusion of fibres from Mother Earth, perfect for the cooler seasons and easy for all crafters to create with. Interstellar has great stitch definition and drapes beautifully thanks to its special composition. Containing both recycled cotton and silk from textile waste, it has vast environmental savings whilst providing a touch of luxury. Our wool meets the Global Responsible Wool Standard, which means our wool comes from farms that meet the Five Freedoms of animal welfare, putting the mental and physical well-being of animals as a priority whilst managing their land with utmost care and attention.
Our recycled cotton and silk are GRS certified, an international certification for recycled content. Certified by a third party ensures social and environmentally sustainable practices are achieved to close the loop.
Available in four colours.
These yarns combine the expertise of The Billie’s patented textile recycling system alongside the spinning and colour knowledge of KPC. Every structure, composition, and colour has been carefully considered and refined to bring you longevity and lower environmental impact, with the style and hand-feel of yarns of virgin fibre.
About The Billie System:
The Billie System is a mechanical textile recycling system in Hong Kong conceived to address textile waste. A patented system that is a combination of new and old technologies. It uses no water and produces no hazardous discharge. The Billie System engages with partners at various stages of closing the loop.
Together, KPC and The Billie System hope to challenge the stigma of ‘recycled’ to show you that upcycled is just as good as, if not better than new! We have crafted two unique and eco-friendly yarns to cater to a wide variety of projects and skill levels.
