Q:Do you have any eco-friendly yarns?
A:Yes, we supply more than 50 colors of recycled cotton yarns. These yarns are made from locally collected post-consumer cotton t-shirts trimmings from all major US manufactures. The yarns are then blended with either acylic or polyester fiber for added strength for knitting as well as weaving application.

Q:What are odd lot yarns?
A:Odd lots of yarns can be varied by either discontinued first quality, off spec, over-runs, seconds or sold as a liquidation from a mill closure. There can be many other reasons for odd lot yarns but these are what we find as the rule to apply to most of our listings.
