Hand wash cold to last longer (and to save water!), do not use bleach, dry flat. Bille Jean Yarn is upcycled denim yarn will perform as most blue jeans, which have the possibility to fade a bit during the first wash and have a small amount of colour transfer.
Billie Jean Yarn has been made from pre-consumer denim remnants from production at denim mills. We're very pleased to have developed Billie Jean Yarn in collaboration with The New Denim Project, a project within a 3rd generation family textile factory, promoting conscious consumption and investment in sustainable materials.
In jean production and like most clothing production, there is tons of waste. In this case, after jeans are made, denim scraps and offcuts are gathered, ground back down into fibres and then these fibres are respun into yarn.
The great news is that the whole process involves no chemicals or dyes and saves on average an incredible 20,000 litres of water per kilogram of upcycled material.
