Reclaimed Cotton RibbonReclaimed Cotton Ribbon

Gifted By: Darn Good Yarn

Reviewed By: Morgan Metcalf, Editor for AllFreeKnitting



There's nothing I love more than getting new skeins of yarn in the office. From the moment I became a knitter, I considered myself a bit of a yarn collector. I'm always looking for beautiful colors and textures to add to my already overflowing yarn stash— variety is key to a lifetime of amazing knits. Growing up, I was always taught to never let anything go to waste, yet recycled yarn from anything other than socks was something I hadn't encountered until I laid my eyes on the Reclaimed Cotton Ribbon from Darn Good Yarn. Now, I can gladly say that I look forward to adding a new type of yarn to my stash. 

Made from the leftovers of cotton garments in India, the Reclaimed Cotton Ribbon from Darn Good Yarn is one hundred percent original to you. There are no dye lots and the strips all range from thin to thick which gives your projects quite the interesting look and feel that the usual yarns simply don't. Each 100g hank contains about 32 feet of unique cotton ribbon just waiting for your next big project— whether it be a rug, slippers, or even a beautiful scarf. This yarn is also categorized a super bulky weight yarn, making all of your knits quick and easy to finish.

I know plenty of knitters are often concerned with washing their knits out of fear of the damage that will be done. However, you don't have to worry about that with Reclaimed Cotton Ribbon. These hanks of cotton ribbon are 100% washable and dryable. So, you no longer have to worry about what will happen to your precious knits when you toss them in the wash. You simply can't go wrong with Reclaimed Cotton Ribbon from Darn Good Yarn.
