I took these amazing battlets from Hobbledehoy on Etsy:



and turned them into this:

Whimsy, 140 yards, 2-ply, sport weight to bulky weight, 4oz.  Contains: Falklands, Merino, Recycled Denim, Mohair & Nylon. 







Let me know what you think.  Smiley  Thanks for looking!

I am pretty sure that is exactly what it is.  They process old jeans and make cotton top and loose fibers from them.
