DMC Eco Vita
DMC's Eco Vita range is a high quality recycled cotton yarn that comes in a wide variety of 30 colours, all inspired by nature. With a composition of 80% recycled cotton and 20% other recycled fibers, this yarn is a conscious and environmentally friendly choice.
The Eco Vita production technique involves the use of textile remains classified according to their color and composition. The fibers are then cut and shredded to finally be spun into a new yarn, which no longer requires any additional dyeing or treatment. In this way, the consumption of water and energy is significantly reduced compared to the production of conventional yarns, which translates into a lower environmental impact.
This thread is ideal for making knitted or crochet garments thanks to its tubular construction that gives it excellent dimensional stability. In addition, it is very easy and pleasant to work with, allowing anyone from beginners to expert knitters to create beautiful and long-lasting garments. DMC's recommendation is to work with #4 or #5 needles to achieve a soft, fresh and natural feel.
Each skein of Eco Vita has a weight of 100 grams and a length of approximately 250 meters, which means that you can create an entire garment with just one or two skeins. The 10 x 10 cm sample requires 22 stitches and 30 rows, and is compatible with a size 4 needle or hook.
In addition to its high quality, Eco Vita is OekoTex certified, which means that it does not contain any chemicals that are harmful to health or the environment. And best of all, this yarn is very easy to care for, as it can be machine washed at 30° with the wool program.
In short, if you are looking for a high-quality, eco-friendly yarn option for your knitting projects, Eco Vita is definitely a great choice. Its easy handling, durability, variety of colors and its low environmental impact make it a conscious and responsible choice with the environment. Do your part in caring for the planet while creating beautiful clothes with Eco Vita by DMC!
