Our ECO Range - Christmas Jumpers made from 100% Recycled Materials

 

Leading the way in sustainability, this season, British Christmas Jumpers are proud to present a new collection; using 100% Recycled Yarn.

The blend of cotton and polyester creates a lovely fabric and soft handle, ensuring a quality garment, whilst also saving the planet.

"Britons’ love of novelty Christmas jumpers is helping to fuel the world’s plastic pollution crisis, a report has warned." - The Guardian, Dec 6th 2019.

Conventional cotton farming is very water intensive, we have avoided this in our recycling process and saved thousands of plastic bottles from being dumped into our oceans.

We firmly believe in the spirit of Christmas and the joy that it brings to millions of people, but this should not come at the expense of the planet that we call our home.

Join the recycled revolution and do your bit to eliminate the plastic waste caused by "single wear" Christmas Jumpers.

 Our cotton polyester blend is created by taking the waste cuttings from pre-consumer cotton textile production, shredding them and then turning them back into soft cotton without redying. We add fibres made from locally recycled plastic bottles to obtain our cotton and polyester blend. The blended fibres are then spun into fine yarn, which is ready for knitting.

 Why cotton and polyester?


We chose to concentrate on cotton because it’s the most used, yet least recycled
fabric and it demands an unbearable amount of water to grow.
PET because its already widely regenerated and is used in low grade packaging.
51% of europe’s plastic bottles are recycled through this process.
