Billie Jean Denim Yarn is the coolest new yarn. This fabulous product brought to you by Wool and the Gang is a yarn made from 100% upcycled denim. Crochet has never been so beautiful!

From the company: "Billie Jean Yarn is made using upcycled pre-consumer denim waste. This waste is ground back into fibre and woven into our new Billie Jean Yarn. Using no chemicals and no dyes, we manage to save 20,000 litres of water per kilogram of upcycled material."

This yarn is my favorite new yarn. You can crochet a hem on a skirt, make a fabulous crocheted top or even knit a small clutch to match your new jean jacket. You can also weave a cozy denim shawl for a one-of-a-kind accessory. Have you ever thought to make a scarf from denim? Using Billie Jean Yarn, you can work up a stunning denim scarf without the stiffness of a typical jean project!

This yarn works up very well into tops and sweaters. A beautiful denim sweater would go well with a cozy cotton skirt. The possibilities are endless! Don't miss the chance to experiment with making a project that wouldn't normally feature denim, because this yarn really does open up the spectrum of projects you can make.

If you're a knitter, this yarn is best used with US8/5mm knitting needles. For crochet, try a 5.5-6.5mm range. The yarn pictured is the raw denim color (100% denim). Billie Jean Yarn also comes in Dirty Denim, a 60% denim, 40% cotton blend with a nice variegated effect. Consider embroidering with the yarn on a denim project for a nice textured effect, or make a nice accessory like a bracelet to complement another denim project. I'll say it again and again: the possibilities are endless!

For an amazing new design and a fun way to spruce up your crochet patterns, try out Billie Jean Yarn by Wool and the Gang.

I would love to try out this Billie Jean Denim Yarn! This yarn is made from pre-consumer denim waste using no chemicals or dyes. I wonder though if this yarn might be a little stiffer than other yarns due to the nature of denim? If so, I can see this yarn used for projects that need a little more firmness, such as bracelets and other jewelry, or bags and totes. Great idea!
