Ecospun clothing is derived from plastic soft drink bottles, PET containers are sorted by type and colour, cleaned, crushed and chopped into flakes. These tiny particles are then melted and produce
a thick liquid that is extruded through large shower head devices to form fibrous polyester strands. The fibers are then crimped, cut and baled. Clothing manufacturers then take the fibers and use them to knit or make woven fabric. Fleece is one of the fabrics that can be achieved by this method and is almost identical to non EcoSpun fleece. Ecospun is a soft and color-fast product achieved without the use of herbicides or pesticides.
EcoSpun, made of 100% recycled plastic bottles, has been independently certified by Scientific Certification Systems. All testing standards have been met, including strength, shrinkage and color fastness.
