‘Laying a blend’ refers to an old industrial technique of preparing raw post-and pre-consumer textile wastes before recycling (shredding or ‘pulling’) back to fibres or a semi-fibrous state.
In the old textile recycling days, everyone knew ‘the game of unspoken truths’. It belonged to us. We had our heritage and we all knew our roles. Contracts were not necessary – deals worth many thousands were made on ‘just’ a handshake. We were ‘just’ trying to make an ‘honest’ living. Let me tell you a story about heavy industry, revolutions and ethics.
In conventional woollen cloth manufacturing, a warp is made from yarn that runs parallel to a cloth’s length but is ‘hidden' in its centre. The warp is fed from cone-shaped bobbins (to reduce surface tension) through a frame that allows yarn to be loaded onto a drum. Next, the drum is positioned on a loom, turning slowly to deliver warp threads running the length of the cloth.
Great news that Yorkshire-based iinouiio is looking to produce its first range of yarns made from 80% recycled wool.....
