Our favourite knit company Wool & The Gang has introduced a special “Billie Jean” yarn made from recycled post consumer waste. By teaming up with a central american supplier who specialises in upcycled denim woven fabrics, the yarns are 100% sustainable made using chemical and dye free processes. This eco friendly process means that 20,000 litres of water per kg of upcycled material is saved.
“We wanted to create a denim yarn that would be just like your fave pair of jeans – a yarn to love and wear forever.”
There are three designs you can make; the “Calvin” top, which is a sleeveless knit with contrasting knit patterns, the slouchy “Pop Life” cardigan, and the “Crazy Feeling” sweater with frayed edges sleeves.
