What is t-shirt yarn? T-shirt yarn has many names: jersey yarn, trapilho & zpaghetti to name a few. You can make your own using old t-shirts, but the yarn used here is brand new fabric that has been reclaimed from fashion industry waste. It is made from textile leftovers in the form of long strips of fabric wound into a bobbin. As the long, flat strips are wound tightly the fabric is pulled and the edges roll in towards each other and create a rounded yarn. The yarn has ‘raw’ edges, which can sometimes curl in and out throughout the jewellery. This is the nature of the irregular material.
Composition: Because t-shirt yarn is made from textile leftovers it can vary in composition and feel. It typically contains between 60-90% cotton, the rest of the content is made up of “other fibers’ which varies and could include: elastane, polyester, lurex, acrylic, viscose, fleece and other natural and synthetic fibers. This necklace is made with t-shirt yarn rescued by: Hoooked “Zpagetti is the original 100% recycled textile yarn made of superior quality recycled textile selvedges and remnants.”
This necklace has long ties and is not suitable for children.
