Our premium Italian recycled nylon is a soft, durable, and strong yarn. It is GRS and OEKO-TEX certified.
The yarn is made from industrial waste nylon by a process called the Melting Continuous System. All waste is recovered from the same production district where the material is recycled, and the bobbins spun. The mechanically recycled material is re-made into yarn through a traced system. The entire recycling and production stages occur in Lombardia, Italy.
The process begins with scraps of nylon recovered from the production lines in the district. These are sorted and saved from being sent to a landfill. The leftovers are shredded so they can be fed into the recycling cycle, then additional nylon is added, and the material is extruded. This produces a recycled polymer that has the appearance and properties of a typical hydrocarbon-based plastic. All of this happens without any chemical additives or materials added to affect traceability.
