Playing With Yarn

Billie Jean Yarn

Check out Wool and the Gang for this Billie Jean denim yarn – made out of upcycled denim remnants straight from the jeans factory! 

I’ve used this yarn in a large blanket project for my upcoming book (!) and I’ve really enjoyed working with it. Is it squishy soft? No.. But it’s not meant to be. This is a very natural denim feel with excellent stitch definition and not too stiff, but not smooshy either. It has beautiful drape and is quite weighty. 

This big blanket will do best if it lives on a bed – perfect to warm you snuggling under the sheets in cold winter weather. I’m calling this piece “the northerner,” so the yarn weight and texture are just perfect.

Highly recommend this yarn. There are 3 shades so far, and working with all 3 is really lovely. You can see plenty of project inspo on the WatG Instagram and website. ❤️❤️❤️
