We want you to be able to enjoy a yarn completely made out of recycled cotton. We believe that it is important to prolong the lifespan of preexisting cotton and we want to give our customers the choice to use these fibers as long as possible. 

The cotton used to manufacture Recycled Cotton is post-consumer and it mainly consists of repurposed garments, household items, etc. 

The color range has all the essential shades and it is mostly toned down. Recycled Cotton has a rustic feel to it and preserves the characteristics that make cotton great: it is resistant and easy to take care of. 

You can work with Recycled Cotton using 4,5 mm (US 7) knitting needles or a 5,5 mm (I-9) crochet hook, hence your project will go by smooth and quickly. 

Do you need some inspiration on what to create with this lovely yarn? We definitely recommend summer tops, trendy trousers, cardigans, dishcloths, and much more. 

We cannot wait for you to enjoy our very first completely recycled cotton yarn. 


I just received my first lot of this new yarn and am using it to make the bodice of a dress. It is a firm texture which is perfect for the structured look I wanted, the weight is giving good drape and I am finding it easy to work with. I like it so much I immediately ordered more. I also love that it's recycled. Very happy


I have used this yarn to make a vest. It ran very nice and the vest looks good. It may be a little rough for a jumper that is worn on the skin, but for something that goes over a T-shirt or singlet, it is perfectly fine.
The colours are bright and stunning and hold their colours during washing.


Just Crochet a towel topper in WE Recycle YARN and an extremely
Pleased. I have used other recycled yarn in the past and found them coarse. And rough. This yarn is very soft and smooth. Easy on my hands when I crochet with it. My new go to yarn for all my cotton projects.


This was my first purchase from hobbi and I am thrilled! I am using it to make dishcloths and they are working up perfectly. The variety of colors is fabulous. They hold their shape well and will be perfect additions tp any kitchen. I am already placing another order!


Good material at a really good price! A bit coarse so would recommend for an outside layer like hats or vests. Also fair warning that it sheds a bit when knitting but thats the norm for recycled cotton yarns. Overall very worth it!
