100% eucalyptus 12 mm,
Let us first explain what we mean by the word Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is the name we give the yarn that we use in some of our rugs. Like wool, for instance, the yarn is called after the material it was made from. Our Eucalyptus yarn was made with the wood of Eucalyptus trees. These European trees form the natural source for the fibre that is then spun into a strong, shiny, natural yarn.
WHY IS IT SO SPECIAL?
Eucalyptus yarn is strong, soft, and can be used in many different applications. Because it is made from Eucalyptustrees, it has most of the characteristics that a woodfibre naturally has, like great moisture management, strength and anti-bacterial performance.
Moreover, the fibre is, compared to cotton and synthetic yarns, very sustainable. The trees can grow on soil that was rejected for the foodindustry, so there is no competition there. The trees that are used for the production of our Eucalyptus yarn are located in European forests, under strict management according to the FSC certificate. When the trees are cut, the process that they are treated in to create the fibre is a closed loop process, which means solvents and water are re-used and recycled. The solvents are even fully biodegradable. And if that wasn't enough, the production of Eucalyptus takes only 2.8% of the water that is needed to produce cotton. Need we say more? We don’t think so.
