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, we manage to save 20,000 litres of water per kilogram of upcycled material.
This yarn drapes like Shiny Happy Cotton, and feels like a dry, light cotton. We have designed specific pieces to work with Billie Jean Yarn, but you can also use patterns made for our Shiny Happy Cotton (note that you’ll need roughly 5% more Billie Jean).
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.
Please Note – Bille Jean Yarn is upcycled denim yarn will perform as most blue jeans, which have the possibility to fade a bit during the first wash, and have a small amount of colour transfer.
