Billie Jean Yarn
Billie Jean looks and feels like a light, smooth cotton, but it's actually leftover denim. Offcuts get scooped up and re-spun rather than heading to a landfill. Billie Jean saves 20,000 litres of water for every kilogram of upcycled denim - she's one cool yarn.
Unique, cool and light, with beautiful drape, a year-round yarn that is especially perfect for the warmer months.
Please note: Billie Jean Yarn is upcycled denim yarn that will perform like most blue jeans, with possibility to fade a little during the first wash and with small amount of color transfer.
