As it comes from unique materials, the colors are original too.

    1. Hi Patricia!

      Fabric yarn is 100% recycled from old t-shirts, and subsequently, every skein is a little bit different from the other. Variations can be huge in length and thickness, ranging from 500m up to 100m depending on the thickness of the tshirts that were used.
