Wool and the Gang's addition scores high in both ethics and aesthetics.

On our minds is Wool and the Gang’s latest yarn and collection made from recycled jeans, ‘Billie Jean’. Derived from denim-mill scraps doomed for the dump, the DIY knitwear brand means that their new yarn championing the iconic fabric takes no chemicals or dyes to make, and compared to the production of new denim also saves the Earth some serious amounts of water. Creative Director Jade Harwood has calls the new addition a ‘jackpot’ scoring high in both ethics, aesthetics and joy of use. The yarns come in two blends, one ‘Raw’ made from 100% denim and one ‘Dirty’ which is mixed with cotton for a softer look and feel, and can be bought separately or in the brand’s signature DIY kits with instructions how to make tops, sweaters and even shorts.
