Recycled wool yarns

Recycled wool fiber is harvested from post consumer textiles gathered from Finnish households. The textiles are turned back into fiber in Paimio by Lounais-Suomen Jätehuolto. New Finnish wool is combined with the recycled wool at the spinner's in Jämsä. The new wool ties the recycled material tightly into the yarn, making the end result a quality product. The recycled wool is mostly merino wool and the new wool is mostly finnsheep wool.

Dying is done in Hämeenkyrö in accordance with Vuonue's own colormap. In recycled yarns the fiber can be seen as different colored spots making it wonderfully tweed-like. You can combine recycled yarns with same weight yarn made entirely from new wool so there are a multitude of colors to choose from. The yarns are named in a way that makes them easy to combine, for example Elsa and Recycled Elsa fit together and so on.

Clothes made from Vuonue's recycled yarns can be recycled again when they come to the end of their lifespan.
