You can give a gift to the planet this year, too. Our new Simply Soft Eco yarn is made from a blend of 80% of our Simply Soft fiber and 20% of fiber made from clean, recycled plastic bottles. So many wonderful things are made from similar types of fiber these days, including t-shirts, blankets, carpets, wall coverings, auto interiors and home furnishings. Advances in technology—converting sanitized clear plastic bottles into "flake", which is then heated and spun — produce a safe, versatile fiber that helps us keep millions of plastic bottles out of landfills. So give Mother Earth a gift this holiday season and choose Simply Soft Eco for your next knit or crochet project.
