Cotton yarn and environment

Ok, now your friends and family love your new crocheted placemats! but there is more….

Not only do handmade placemats add a unique and personal touch to your dining experience, but they’re also a sustainable choice for the environment.

By using cotton yarn, you’re opting for a natural and biodegradable material, unlike plastic or synthetic placemats that can harm the planet. Plus, you can wash and reuse your handmade placemats again and again, reducing waste and promoting eco-friendliness.

It’s a win-win for both you and the environment.
