5mm Newtown Amber is a gorgeous, eco-friendly braided cotton cord from Devon-based Jolly Good Yarn. The yarn is created by upcycling left-over textiles from manufacturing, as well as clothes that may have otherwise gone to landfill. This versatile, soft, washable cord is made from at least 70% recycled cotton. It is ideal for macrame, crochet and chunky knitting projects. Unlike other brands, this braided cord is just cotton, there's no polyester core. Each hank weighs 500g and provides approximately 100m of cord. Due to its recycled nature, which involves the blending of different colours, the shade may vary slightly over time. It is recommended that you purchase enough yarn to complete your project.
