EcoYarns :: Soy

So(y) Sublime

Another aspect of eco-friendliness is a new product made from a by-product. Who would have thought that yarn could come from the pulp leftover from the production of soy milk and tofu? In the same way that tencel comes from wood pulp, a wonderfully silky yarn is the end result. Soya Cotton from Sublime, is a fifty-fifty blend in beautiful sun-splashed colors. It is a DK weight yarn with a lovely hand. It is perfect for a summer-weight sweater and the sheen of the soy helps give the cotton a little more oomph. Try to add a little more protein in your yarn diet with soy yarn!
