Sustainability Initiatives

Now available at Spool and Spindle: Scrap Textile Recycling and Composting Services.

A sustainable way to dispose of your natural textile scraps.  We are accepting the following fabric scraps: Cotton, Linen, Ramie, Hemp, Lyocell, Silk, Wool, Alpaca and Mohair. Larger scraps are donated to local textile artists and various sewing non-profits.


  • Scraps must be 100% or a blend of any of the above fibers.
  • Printed fabrics are acceptable
  • Please remove interfacing as much as possible. 
  • It is fine if polyester thread is included amongst natural fibres.

Fibers will be sent to a composting facility within Ontario.
