The Venne Eco Jeans Nm 12/2 yarn is recycled from jeans/jeans clothing and used PET bottles. The old clothes are given a second chance thanks to this unique production process. Denim fabric is made very small, but no thread can be spun from this loose fiber. A thread can be spun by adding used, finely chopped PET bottles to the loose jeans fiber.
