UPCYCLED DENIM YARN
Billie Jean Yarn is made using upcycled pre-consumer denim waste. This waste is ground back into fibre and woven into our new Billie Jean Yarn. Using no chemicals and no dyes, Wool and the Gang has managed to save 20,000 litres of water per kilogram of upcycled material. This yarn feels like a dry, light cotton.
Billie Jean Yarn has been developed in collaboration with The New Denim Project, a project within a 3rd generation family textile factory promoting conscious consumption and investment in sustainable materials.
