Barcelona's Unitin develops recycled Indigo yarns

Jun '17
Unitin, a trademark of Industrias Morera SA and a leading textile company from Barcelona, Spain, specialised in the dye and finishing on piece and yarn, has announced that the company has set up a new implementation to use all its Indigo cotton leftovers to make recycled yarn. This step is taken in accordance with social and environmental responsibility.

Unitin has always been concerned to work with the most advanced standards towards both social as well as environmental responsibility, and is now taking one more step toward a zero waste policy.

Producing indigo warps and wefts in a continuous and modern machinery generates a certain quantity of leftovers. Approximately 3 per cent to 5 per cent of total production is not usable and has to be rejected. In order to assure that the yarn will have the right strength to be used in any textile application (either knits or woven), the Indigo cotton leftovers are mixed with recycled polyester fibres.

As a first step, Unitin introduces count Ne 7/1 Pes/Cot 50/50 in 2 shades, dark and light. Twisted yarns are also being offered. As this production is made of Unitin leftovers, only a limited stock will be available for customers. Unitin also offers a few sets of sustainable fabrics made with the new recycled yarns with sustainable Tencel yarns.

The use of the already indigo-dyed cotton eliminates the need to dye the yarn, saving water and energy. The final garment wash also demands less water and chemicals. All production is certified under the Global Recycled Standard. (GK)
