The Difference Between Cotton & Recycled Cotton


Yarns which are Certified Organic are spun from fibers produced without the use of man-made chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Where a yarn is dyed, the dyes must be non-toxic and organic. The production of organic cotton yarn doesn't use harmful chemicals, genetically modified seeds, or water-intensive farming techniques. Organic cotton is better than the regular one because it is much more sustainable.
Recycled cotton yarn
is sourced from already existent cotton, which means that it helps keep waste down and has a minimal impact on the environment. Recycled cotton is also commonly referred to as regenerated cotton, reclaimed cotton, or shoddy. 
Although recycled cotton is durable, it does have some issues with longevity due to it being a natural fabric – it isn't tear, or abrasive resistant. Recycled cotton does not hold a high elasticity in comparison with other yarn.

My Own Yarn Shop and Crochet Studio

Hello, crafty blog  friends!
Here I am, after a long absence, with some exciting news.
I opened my own brick and mortar yarn shop and crochet studio!!!
Getting everything done, mostly by myself but also with generous help from family and friends when needed, was a tiring journey, but rewarding in the end.
As I slowly settle down with my new role and work, I hope to be able to resume my normal blogging and online work.
