We recycle. We care.

Not Just Another Cotton Yarn!

As its name suggests, Re-Jeans comes from the recycled denim cotton from the manufacture of jeans. It is recycled cotton made of post-industrial denim waste rather than post-consumer.  We take the fabric residues and gradually dissolve and wash them down, step by step, to the individual fibres which are then mixed again and spun into a yarn. 

Sustainable & Eco-Friendly

Cotton production requires a lot of water, energy, and labour. Recycled cotton, on the other hand, is an eco-friendly alternative to regular cotton because it demands fewer resources to manufacture. According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), about 20,000 litres of water are needed to produce one kilogram of cotton, the equivalent of one T-shirt and one pair of jeans. By recycling cotton, we reduce the environmental impact of textile waste ending up in landfills, save energy, and save water. 

The Perfect Vegan Alternative to Wool!

The recycling process gives Re-Jeans its characteristic, beautiful rustic appealing structure.  Re-Jeans is a comfortable yarn to knit with because the yarn does not split, as is often the case with “simple” cotton yarns. As with other cotton, Re-Jeans can also be worn directly on the skin, making it ideal for people with sensitive skin for whom wool is too prickly.


Re-Jeans is something special: it's not just a cotton yarn but a recycled cotton yarn based on reclaimed denim. The recycling process bestows upon the yarn a charmingly rustic and attractive structure, reminiscent of Bourette silk.
