In the UK 350,000 tonnes of used but still wearable clothing goes to landfill every year*, imagine the number of scarfs you could knit! This shocking figure highlights the work that needs to be done within this constantly growing industry.
John, our co-founder has been working with Offset Warehouse to record an amazing masterclass on the process of transforming discarded wool into repurposed yarn. In the second part of this two-part lesson you will learn how the UK textile trade has changed over the last 50 years, discussing both the challenges and opportunities which lie within its revitalisation.
Working alongside other industry experts the masterclass explores the key technology and terminology behind textile recycling. They will also be sharing their take on the social issues impacted by the textile recycling process and how the big brands are responding.
The classes are open to everyone whether you’re a textile nerd or just looking to learn something new to keep your brain busy. A deeper understanding of textile recycling is vital to helping us all create a more positive impact on the planet as we navigate the textile industry.
