Jersey Be Good is our t-shirt yarn that comes in a range of amazing colours, it's fun to knit and crochet with and it even has a positive impact by cleaning up the fashion industry’s waste. What’s not to love?
This unique t-shirt yarn is made from fabric roll off–cuts from fashion factories in Turkey. The unused ends of the rolls are sliced off before sale, then made into this new yarn by the local women. Why not turn these offcuts, normally sent to landfill, into something really fun and beautiful? Our Jersey Be Good yarn is a great choice for the environmentally conscious knitter.

Please note: Due to the popularity of Jersey Be Good, colours can sell out quickly. Depending on the exact fabric scraps the yarn is made from, the exact colour, feel and thickness of the yarn can vary. Keep this in mind for larger projects. Also, the way we package this yarn is changing, it will no longer come wound onto cones (as shown in some of our photos).
What's it Like to Knit With?
Fun to knit - great for anyone who wants to try something new and different. Happiness guaranteed.
