The Process

Plastic bottles are collected, washed, flaked and sorted by type and colour, then compressed and bailed. The Plastic flakes are heated and melted to produce both long and short fibres for yarn production. This yarn can be woven or knitted in the same way as conventional fabric, thus helping to create a sustainable system for recycling waste back into everyday products, such as clothing, toys etc.
