Billie Jean Aran
Billie Jean Yarn from Wool and the Gang is made from pre-consumer denim remnants from production at denim mills. In jean production and like most clothing production, there is tons of waste. In this case, after jeans are made, denim scraps and offcuts are gathered, ground back down into fibres and then these fibres are re-spun into yarn. The great news is that the whole process involves no chemicals or dyes and saves on average an incredible 20,000 litres of water per kilogram of upcycled material.
Upcycled fabric minimises the environmental impact of textile production and decreases the amount of waste that goes into landfill.Weight: Aran
