This lovely cotton yarn is made from all recycled materials. Waste cuts from denim manufacturing is repurposed to make Billie Jean Yarn. Wool and the Gang developed this yarn in collaboration with The New Denim project; a family run, conscious consumption, textile factory. 20000 litres of water per kilogram are saved, and no chemicals or dyes are added in the making of this yarn. In other words something that was at one time destined for land fill has risen phoenix-like and become this beautiful yarn. Win! Win!
