WHAT’S THE STORY?
From discarded plastic bottles — to beautiful, lasting knitwear. Our squishy New Wave Yarn is on a mission, turning the planet’s plastic pollution into your next project.
We’ve packed 3 whole recycled plastic bottles into each ball of New Wave Yarn.
Recycled, sustainable do-good yarn ready to take on your next knitting or crochet project so you can reach eco-conscious highs. Let’s make waves and save our seas!
Be a #changemaker
Because our New Wave yarn contains recycled plastics, we recommend washing it in a GUPPYFRIEND bag. These help to reduce the amount of pesky microplastics entering the water stream and therefore our lovely oceans and are available to buy here.
WHAT'S IT LIKE TO KNIT WITH?
With the blend of cotton you’ll create amazing stitch definition with a gorgeous drape. Light and soft, this yarn is suitable for beginners as well as pros!
WHAT CAN I MAKE?
Sweaters, cardigans, bags, beanies, scarves and more. No matter what your knit level is, there’s a New Wave kit waiting in the wings (or waters).
WORKS WELL WITH THESE STITCHES: Moss Stitch, Stocking Stitch, Cable Stitches, 1x1 Ribs, Lace Rib Stitch.
Hand wash only in cold or lukewarm water - do not exceed 30 degrees / Use a delicates hand wash detergent / Give your knits a gentle squeeze and leave in the water for a few minutes / Once done, roll in a clean towel to remove excess water and then dry flat.
Note: Use a Guppy Bag to reduce fibre shedding and to protect your clothes.
