1 Comment

I was excited to learn that Unifi, Greensboro, N.C., will be featured on the T.V. series “How It’s Made?”

Unifi makes Repreve, a yarn made from 100% recycled materials. Companies use this yarn to make all kinds of materials. Products include home and office furnishings, apparel, socks and hosiery and sewing thread. Industries that use the product include hospitality, industrial, automotive, military and medical.

On the Repreve site, Unifi also lists some brand names that use the the yarn: Perry Ellis, Kohler Baby, Covington, Patagonia, REI, Turtle Fur and Performance Bike.
