Recycled wool and cotton fabrics are prolonging the life cycle of processed fibers. They are produced from sorted and cleansed fibers, reducing the need for new commodities enormously. Recycled cotton fibers are made from remnants of old textiles. During the recycling procedure the textiles, sorted by color first, are shredded into fibers and then spun again into new threads. By adding fresh fibers, the whole procedure results in a quality product, thus reducing the quantity of resource-intensive new items.
