RibbonXL is a soft tape yarn made of 100% recycled cotton clips. Left-over fabric strips are selected according to colour, shredded into yarn fibre and spun again before being knitted into a lightweight tube. No dyeing or other additives are applied. The yarn is itch-free, slightly elastic and perfect for making homewares, XL garnments and large amigurumis.
The idea for Hoooked originated in 2007 when the founder, Geesje Mosies, saw first-hand the amount of fabric waste European fashion textile factories produced. This led to the development of Zpagetti, a 100% recycled cotton yarn made of this fabric waste. Since then their range has grown with both yarns and accessories, but the basic concept has always been the same – to develop sustainable products that are environmentally friendly.
The most of Hoooked’s fabric yarns are slightly elastic, strong and durable. This makes them easy to work with. Thanks to the jumbo dimensions, you’ll see results fast. Once you’ve gotten the hang of the technique, you will want to crochet or knit anything and everything!
