From old jeans that we no longer wear, a new yarn is born!
Let’s Twist Jeans is a locally made yarn, produced in Italy, in Prato, our city, but also one of the most important textile districts in the world!
But how does recycling happen? The fabric of old jeans, or unused jeans, is shredded, reduced to fibers and spun again. A 100% recycled and recyclable product for a more sustainable fashion.
Let’s Twist Jeans is a resistant yarn consisted of 95% cotton and 5% other fibers. But what are “other fibers”? They are the different types of yarns used in the old jeans’ seams that cannot be detected and therefor enter the reclycling process.
Let’s Twist Jeans is very similar to our Love My Jeans yarn, but with an extra “twist”: it has a mouliné look because 3 threads of different colors are twisted together creating new shades.
Do you want to find out which color is best for you, according to Colour Analyisis?
