step five: new yarn
The fine wadding gets spun
into a thin yarn. Due to its
delicateness, the yarn lends
itself exquisitely to knitwear.
The light blue colour varies
in shade, depending on the
colour of the original material.
The colour is mingled from the
indigo blue outside of a classic
pair of jeans and its off-white
inside; the warp and the weft of
the former woven textile. Every
now and then dark blue or ochre
colour nibs are blended into the
overall greyish blue. These two
are the most popular colours,
used as sewing yarn for denim
garments, so these colours appear
in the new yarn as well. The subtle
yet rich patterns of the material
tell the story of its origin.
