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.
- 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
NOTE: This thread is difficult to find in Australia because most big stores think you’re not interested in recycled thread and won’t order it. I have to special-order it from Germany, so supply can be irregular.
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.
