Spotlighted by the UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT), Last Yarn is on a mission is to rescue deadstock fabric which would otherwise end up in landfill, with a vision to reduce and repurpose overstock. It has been co-founded by designer Deborah Lyons, a former recipient of the Tradeshow Access Programme grant co-ordinated by UKFT.

She said: “The industry has a lot of catching up to do, and while we’re using…deadstock, we also need to research new materials and get to a stage where fully recycled or sustainable fabrics are available to the wider public”.
