Suitability of end-of-life textiles for recycled fabric

Pure Waste Company’s process involves refibering and spinning post-consumer textiles in both India and in the facility in Laroche, France. In the testing scale, the opened fibres of post-consumer textiles are used as fully recycled yarn which is a mix of 50% PWC cotton and 50% side stream cotton. Tests in the production scale are still under way, but the first batch, which included 20% of PWC cotton, 40% of side stream cotton and 40% of recycled polyester, was a success. Next, the yarn will be knitted and made into a completed end product, and the properties of both the yarn and the knitted fabric are tested.
