In recent years, there has been a growing concern about the environmental impact of the fashion industry. From the production of raw materials to the disposal of finished products, the industry has a significant impact on the environment. However, there are many efforts being made to create sustainable solutions that minimise this impact. One such solution is future.wool, a low volume, sustainable dyeing solution for wool yarns.
Through Innovate UK we have been given funding to build our pilot line right here in the Cotswolds. This is significant support that will enable us to build a multi end machine capable of dyeing any wool yarn type to a broad colour range.
We are currently looking for cone ends, seconds and waste yarn that can help us evaluate particular wool types and fancy yarns on our line.
