Blue Stippled Trapilho with Floral Motifs
Tek-Tek Trapilho is a yarn - usually known as fabric or t-shirt yarn - that derives from haute couture clothing surplus, with fashionable patterns and is great for crochet, knitting, macramé or weaving.
The yarn is selected from huge batches, of which only the best selvedges give rise to Tek-Tek Trapilho. Unlike the vast majority of yarns, this one is not produced artificially or with the purpose of being used for handicraft work, rather it is the result of the reuse of a raw material that would otherwise be discarded and wasted or even used for other purposes, potentially harmful to the environment. It is, therefore, a recycled article.
It is quite normal and natural this yarn may not be completely regular and that it may occasionally contain some flaws or imperfections. On the other hand, the final products are almost unique! Useful or decorative items, from rugs, carpets or curtains to placemats, baskets, poufs or handbags; there are countless possibilities for which Tek-Tek Trapilho might be used, it only takes imagination and creativity.
Weight may vary depending on fabric composition and yarn thickness. A big ball of Tek-Tek Trapilho contains, on average, about 120 metres (130 yards) of yarn and allows you to make, for example, a rectangular piece of 50x50 centimetres (20x20 inches), roughly, in single crochet stitch.
