This lovely, high-quality sewing thread is made from recycled plastic bottles – a more environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional polyester sewing thread.
Because it’s made in the same production facilities with the same processes, it’s virtually indistinguishable from Gutermann non-recycled polyester thread. The colours are identical, too; when you run out of your favourite Gutermann thread, replace it with its rPET equivalent by matching the number on the top of your spool.
- Made from recycled plastic beverage bottles, conserving resources and reducing CO2 emitted in the manufacturing process. Approximately 1,000m of rPET sew-all thread is produced from one PET beverage bottle.
- Fade-resistant and colourfast
- Suitable for machine sewing, overlocking and hand sewing
Made in Germany from 100% recycled polyester (rPET) thread on a new 100% polystyrene plastic spool. Click here to view the Gutermann rPET thread brochure.
