Dempstah- Recycled yarn
  • Dempstah- Recycled yarn

    This innovative yarn is created using factory offcuts and consumer textile waste.

    Using a completely mechanical process, fabrics are sorted by colour and shredded into a fibrous fleece. This is then blended with Australian merino wool. These yarns have consumed no water, no bleach and no dye in their creation. The composition of these recycled and wool fibres creates the marled colour.

    Dempstah have given a second life to discarded textiles that may otherwise end up in landfill. If you’re looking to reduce your footprint and create something beautifully unique, than this is the yarn for you.


    The yarn composition varies depending on the colour yarn: 

    • 32 - 52% Recycled Organic Cotton
    • 3 - 23% Recycled Australian Merino Wool
    • 45% Australian Merino Wool (virgin core)
    • Mechanically recycled - no water, no bleach, no dye
