Living a sustainable life to protect our beautiful environment is a growing concern and is important for many of us. There are many ways of living a greener life but you may not have thought you could do it with your knitting! LoveKnitting is now stocking the lovely Bergere de France Recyclaine, a 60% recycled yarn and we have 3 gorgeous patterns that use this yarn below! PLUS, to make things even better, we’re offering 20% off Recyclaine yarn until September 28 2014! (No promo needed) It’s never been easier to knit green.
This beautiful yarn is more than just a ball of wool, we all know how important sustainable development is and so Bergère De France has taken steps to save the planet by developing this new yarn with up to 60% of its fibres being recycled in the Bergère De France factory. So what’s recycled? Here we go… 25% recycled acrylic, 20% recycled wool, 10% recycled mixed fibres and 5% recycled polyamide! Phew. Machine washable and knitting up on 9mm needles, it is a fantastic yarn for all your chunky projects, and you can feel good wearing it knowing it’s a greener option!
