This Reclaimed Cotton Ribbon from Darn Good Yarn was made from trimmings, extras, and "not quite perfect" remnants of cotton garments and other products made in India. These trimmings are captured and re-sewn together to create this unique ribbon. Because of the handmade nature of this product, no specific dye-lots are used, which means the exact color of each hank may vary slightly from each other. Additionally, the strips of ribbon can go from wide to thick.

Reclaimed Cotton Ribbon is perfect for a variety of crochet or knit projects including potholders, rugs, tote bags, just to name a few! One major bonus of this yarn is that it's super easy to care for. Because it's 100% cotton, simply wash it as it if were a t-shirt. Each hank contains approximately 32 feet of material and can be easily stretched out during use.

Darn Good Yarn prides itself on providing you with fairly traded and child labor free yarns. Business decisions are based on these principles — all of their yarn is made from recycled and Earth friendly materials and much of it is created from the colorful remnants of the production of silk saris in Nepal and Northern India. These materials are handspun and dyed by women’s groups in Nepal. Darn Good Yarn provides these women with a marketplace for the products, as well as much needed wages for their families.
