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. Use it for mending by hand or with a sewing machine.
Each box set features 10 x 100m spools in complementary colours. Choose from three different colour combinations: basics, pastels or brights.
- 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, hand sewing and embroidery
Made in Germany from 100% recycled polyester (rPET) thread on new 100% polystyrene plastic spools, packaged in a box made from 100% recycled cardboard with a clear plastic window.
