Waste Hosiery is pre-consumer textile waste that is dyed (nude/fleshtone) castoff materials produced throughout the manufacturing process. This material has unlimited creative possibilities and since 2003, we have specialized in working with waste hosiery to produce our very own hand crafted textiles, clothing, accessories, 3D forms, etc. Our research and exploration with this material have proven limitless.
Now working with waste is no easy feat. It has taken years to develop relationships with textile mills to be able to consistently acquire their waste streams.
Our textiles and clothing may have their signature style (www.sanssoucie.ca) and we frequently receive requests from artists, designers, makers, crafters, etc. who want to work with our dyed offcut waste materials. This has proven to become a difficult task to maintain as we tend to utilize these scraps for various projects.
Given there is interest in working with our materials, we have opened our precious waste hosiery resource to you!
The material is dyed but don't fret. You can overdye this material or use as is ( it will just give you a more desaturated colour palette).
You can dye, print, cut --basicially transform this material into anything. Hosiery is a second skin and is composed of a jersey knit construction so it is maleable and has the ability to transform into various forms and shapes.
100% dyed waste hosiery 100% nylon 100% Made in Canada (Montreal)
Materials comes as is. In various shapes, lengths and sizes. Some materials may be fully constructed as wearable hosiery and have no flaws ( just didn't meet quality control) or there could be slight imperfections such as snags, holes, legs extremely long or come as tubes. We never know what we are going to receive so please keep this in mind. No refunds or returns.
If you are a crafter, maker, artist who wishes to dye the material you can contact us for more information regarding this. This material does dye like silk and wool because of its structure. Again it is a whole lot of fun to work with!
