Polartec and Repreve Join Up
We use Polartec® fleece to make SleepPhones. We're very excited to hear that Polartec® is joining up with Repreve® to produce 100% recycled fleece in the future! Our current fleece is already 88% recycled plastic bottles, and 12% spandex. That probably won't change, because we need the spandex for the stretch. Every pound of Repreve 100 yarn converts 27 water bottles and saves a half gallon of gas. Their products should reach you in 2011.
