The Deadstock Reality.
What you may not know is that there is an alarming amount of high quality fabric and yarn out there that is simply not being used. Consider it collateral damage from normal knitwear production that later just sits in warehouses.
This is deadstock - inventory that doesn’t move. And in Peru alone, in just yarn, this is happening to the tune of at least 15+ tons per year as the sum of leftovers from different yarn suppliers and factories. It’s not really on purpose, somehow the yarn just reproduces like rabbits.
How do we know? We have a lot of experience as the behind-the-scenes people of knitwear production. Maybe we even made the sweater you’re wearing. And this means we see leftover production materials happen in real time, all the time. Seeing this happen before our eyes, we couldn’t really just sit around and do nothing, could we?
