Ekos by Katia


Make your projects with Kata EKOS, the most sustainable yarn in the world,

created to reduce our global footprint on the planet by:

* unique colours that are not dyed and therefore made without water consumption or chemical products

* 50% of the energy used to recycle and spin each ball of yarn is solar, hence reducing greenhouse emissions

* EKOS exists thanks to the Textile Recycling System by Recover, pioneer in the development of low impact recycled yarns

This yarn makes absolutely gorgeous bags and we have 2 options for you

Firstly we have our own design – the

Ekos Crocheted Pebble Bag

Designed to be a perfect ‘grab and go’ bag. The bag has poppers on the side to make the bag a little smaller (24 cm wide x 22 cm high) , or unpop them to give greater capacity (30 cm wide x 22cm high)

The Pebble Bag is perfect for every day and also makes an ideal summer and holiday bag as it is large enough to easily hold an iPad or kindle, a book, sun cream, sunglasses and lots more!

To make the pebble bag you need just 4 balls of your main colour, 3 balls contrast colour, 4.5mm crochet hook, large eye sewing up needle and 3 x 15mm snap fasteners, available here in packs of 6.

The pattern is also available to purchase on its own as either a pdf download or printed and posted.

The second option is a larger holdall bag designed by Katia.

And the best thing is – it’s a really lovely, versatile yarn to work with and there is a FREE pattern for the fish potholders included with your yarn purchase

and order alongside your yarn and also great for macramé projects!

Each 50g ball of yarn is made from 50% Recycled cotton, 47% Recycled polyester from plastic bottles and 3% other fibres and has 55 m / 60 yds

Hook and needle  size is dependant on the project but varies from 4.5mm – 6mm

Machine washable up to 30 degrees
