Eco sewing…

We’re all trying to be conscious of the environment these days and the topic of single-use plastic is at the forefront of many eco conversations. Well, I’m very pleased to say that we now have the Gütermann Sew-all rPet thread in stock on the website. Those that came to the Knit and stitching show in October will have seen Mr.M with this thread and it has had a very good reception so we thought we would share them on the Maven site too!

It’s a good general all-purpose thread, with all the quality that we know we can expect from Gütermann.

It’s eco-friendly and made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, one bottle can produce around 1000m of sew-all thread.

That’s got to be a good thing!

  1. Delighted to see this news. Hadn’t crossed my mind that the threads I use might not be environmentally friendly.

    1. I hadn’t either, It’s such a simple change! I’ll continue to use up my old thread but I’m just going to use this thread whenever I need to buy new thread instead of my usual one.
