Stylecraft is thrilled to have won the award for Best Knitting brand in this year’s Craft Business Awards. Annabelle Hill, Sales & Marketing Director said: A huge thank you to all of our customers for your continued support and appreciation. We are so proud that our yarns are loved and enjoyed and we look forward to providing lots of exciting new products in the future.

True to its word, Stylecraft has just released ReCreate – a yarn made entirely from recycled, upcycled and reused fibres, which will have less of an impact on the environment.

ReCreate is a blended yarn that is 40% wool from recycled garments, 30% acrylic, also from garments that have been recycled, and 30% polyester that comes from plastic bottles that are shredded before being spun into yarn.

The classic palette of eight colours (Ecru, Rose, Cherry, Dijon, Smoke, Sky, Ink and Charcoal) features in a collection of easy-to-wear garments including this season’s must-have slipover and on-trend fuller sleeves. Cable, lace and Fair Isle bring further interest to the garments.

Manufactured by expert spinners in Turkey, ReCreate is a wonderfully soft DK yarn with a conscience. Look out for more ReCreate coming soon!

ReCreate yarn is made from recycled wool (40%), acrylic (30%) and polyester (30%). A ball weighs 100g and has 350 metres of yarn. List Price: £17.80; RRP: £4.25
