Make all your summer knits in Billie Jean! This denim yarn is cool, drapey and a pleasure to knit!

Billie Jean yarn is made using upcycled pre-consumer denim waste. The denim waste is ground back into fiber and woven into yarn. Using no chemicals and no dyes, it saves 20,000 liters of water per kilogram of upcycled material.

Love this sturdy but soft cotton yarn!

I have bought about 10 skeins of this yarn in just about every colorway—it’s surprisingly soft, but strong enough to make hand-knit market bags and other accessories that would get some wear & tear. I have been so pleased with every project I make with it—and love its eco-friendly origins.

Great photo of your market bag! We agree, Billie Jean is a really versatile cotton that can be used to make garments as well as accessories. Thanks for the review.-Laura

nice feel and color for summer project

I like this yarn and the color very much. It's a great summer yarn for a pattern that uses open stitches. My only complaint is that it is a little hard to work with as a beginner because the yarn comes apart a bit. I frequently had to correct mistakes due to accidentally "splitting the yarn". I think with sharper needles, or with more experience, this might not be a problem.

Knitting with cotton can be a little tricky because it lacks elasticity, but we all love to work with it in the summer. We hope you enjoy wearing your Billie Jean project! Thanks for the review.-Laura
