Recycled yarn is our collective name to indicate that the yarns used in this garment are made from recycled materials. This can be recycled polyester, for example, but can also be recycled cotton, or a combination of recycled materials. The care label inside the garment describes which material has been used in what quantity. Recycled materials are made from residual materials, which are converted back into raw materials.
