Conserving Threads celebrates textile fibers. While we enjoy the hand and feel of all fibers we are currently exploring cotton, hemp, flax and nettle bark. CT feels that giving a second chance to textiles ♻ is a must. We repurpose clothing and vintage linens; the older and unwanted the better. An out-of-fashion skirt is now upcycled into a yarn bowl, a pair of discarded jeans is now a handbag; an antique hand embroidered placemat is turned into an elegant clutch; or that soft sweater is now skeins of lovely yarn ready for a new project. Our reclaimed yarns are from pre-loved items of clothing, sourced largely from second chance stores. Mostly natural fibers are chosen and gently taken apart and wound into skeins. Since this reclaimed yarn is ♻ recycled from a sweater please be aware that there might tie-ons, either from the manufacturing process or the unraveling process. We are a smoke free and pet friendly environment.

Conserving Threads likes to look and re-imagine.

    I'm a Heritage Preservationist with a specialty in textiles. I spend my days working on other people's collections and historic items. Being able to create and explore fabrics and textures is a welcome distraction.
