Composition, certification and savings of the yarn
100% recycled, made from 70% post-consumer textile waste and 30% recycled polyester from PET bottles. The yarn is developed for both knitwear and weaving applications.
Composition of the sourced post consumer textile waste: 86% cotton, 10% polyester and 4% various materials. This gives the following composition of the new yarn: 60% recycled cotton, 37% recycled polyester (from both textiles and PET) and 3 % various,
The yarn is spun by Recover made in close collaboration with ReBlend. Recover is trusted worldwide because of their long history in recycling and because they are a third party certified for highest labor and environmental standards. The yarn is certified GRS, global compact and Oeko-tex 100. Since Oeko-tex does not a make a difference between post industrial and post consumer textiles the yarn has been additionally tested ( ph, azo dyes and formaldehyde).
Savings per kilo ReBlend yarn (comparative ReBlend 70% PCT + 30rPET to conventional 70% cotton and 30% polyester:
- Water consumption 7,46 liters
- Energy 36 kWh
- Emissions 11,50 kg GHG
- Cultavation area 1,2 m2
