Recycled cotton yarn.

A cotton yarn that looks and performs as new but contains 50% recycled cotton fibre

 Spinners Gerbruder Otto have perfected the spinning of a cotton yarn that contains 50% recycled cotton fibre from previously discarded cotton fibres.  The yarn from recycled fibre and 50 % virgin cotton has all the characteristics of normal cotton yarn.  

Cotton cultivation relies heavily on huge amounts of water. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature it can take, depending on the cultivation and region, between12,000 and 27,000 litres of water to produce just 1 kilo of cotton fibre.   Reusing some cotton fibres other processes saves huge amounts of water which is particularily scarce in intensive cotton growing regions.
