Billie Jean Yarn is made using upcycled pre-consumer denim waste. This waste is ground back into fibre and woven into Billie Jean Yarn. Using no chemicals and no dyes, WATG manage to save 20,000 litres of water per kilogram of upcycled material.
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 that will perform like most blue jeans, with the possibility to fade a little during the first wash and with a small amount of colour transfer.
