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.
Billie Jean Yarn is the perfect yarn for those summer knits – or year–round wardrobe staples. Use it for sweaters, tops and accessories.

Tension and Ply
The Ply information provided on this website is a guide only.
We recommend, the most accurate way to begin when hand knitting is to follow the instructions for each yarn/pattern and knit a tension square.
