100% recycled, "fallen virgin cotton" from Japan. The yarn is made from the cotton fibers that fall to the floor in the process of cotton spinning or weaving. The fibers are then spun to make this recycled yarn. Re: sistance" is made with this 100% eco-friendly recycled yarn, the same as Re re ly. The yarn is then dyed with beautiful soft colors. This yarn is versatile and is good for making baby blankets or any non-wool garment. Available in Japan... and at Knit House. :-) Thank you, Chiaki!
