The plastic bottles are washed and cut into chips, then melted and extruded into fine denier poly microfibers. Other than the color, these fibers are indistinguishable from virgin polyester fibers. It is wonderful any time we have the opportunity to recycle and reuse plastic, and this use is just amazing. Each pound of Dream Green rescues 10 bottles that could be added to the landfills.

· The poly fibers do not hold moisture so it washes and dries very quickly in the machine or on the line
· There is no shrinkage, so the quilt will have the same look after washing a hundred times as it did when it was first quilted
· Dream Poly and Dream Green do not hold a crease – fold and store the quilt (or ship it to a show) and shake it out flat with no worries of fold lines or wrinkles.
· The fibers are needle-punched so you get the right amount of loft – not too puffy and just lofty enough to show off the stitches
