Our Billie Jean Yarn is now officially certified by the Vegan Society, meaning it's free-from animal ingredients and has not been tested on animals.
Our Billie Jean Yarn is made from pre-consumer denim scraps and offcuts which are ground back into fibres and re-spun into yarn. We don’t use any nasty dye fixers or chemicals in this process, however this does mean some dye may transfer to your needles or hands while you’re stitching.
Hand wash only in cold or lukewarm water - do not exceed 30 degrees / Use a delicates hand wash detergent / Give your knits a gentle squeeze and leave in the water for a few minutes / Once done, roll in a clean towel to remove excess water and then dry flat.
Note: as this product is upcycled denim it will perform as most blue jeans and there is possibility it will fade during the first wash and have a small amount of colour transfer.
