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 ‘Eden’ range is another special blend inspired by nature and accessible to all crafters. ‘Eden’ is suitable for all year round, soft to work with and great for all projects from summer knits through to crocheted homeware. The organic and recycled cotton fused in ‘Eden’ gives huge environmental savings when compared to yarns of regular virgin fibre. Our GOTS & OCS certified organic cotton means our fibre is grown and processed according to international organic standards - avoiding the use of toxic chemicals or synthetic pesticides. Lyocell-Lenzing Refibra provides beautiful sheen and drape with further environmental benefits. The Lenzing process involves upcycling disposed cotton waste in addition to wood pulp to create a new fibre. This gives a second life to the cotton waste which otherwise be sent to landfill or incinerated.
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.
