We believe that sustainable manufacturing solutions are the only way to protect the earth and our future. With an increasing desire for sustainable products from consumers and a growing need to address plastic pollution, DGrade has developed Greenspun™ a high-quality yarn made from recycled plastic water bottles. Greenspun™ yarn replaces traditional polyester yarn to produce a wide range of fabric for clothing and accessories.
Plastic bottles are collected and sorted by type and colour, then washed and flaked. The plastic flakes are heated and melted to produce fibres for yarn production. This yarn can be woven or knitted in the same way as conventional yarn, thus helping to create a sustainable system for recycling 'waste' back into everyday products, such as clothing and accessories.Read More
