What is t-shirt yarn?

T-shirt yarn is primarily made up of remnant yarn from the textile industry. It’s a wide/chunky form of yarn that grows quickly and is easy to work with.

When ordering t-shirt yarn it’s important to note the colour in any picture may vary from the yarn that arrives at your door. Equally, we cannot guarantee the colour between any two bobbins will be the same, slight variations may occur.

How big are the yarn bobbins?

We import from a number of different suppliers and, as mentioned elsewhere, it’s important to realise that t-shirt yarn isn’t manufactured – instead it’s created from the remnants of the textile industry.

It’s common for bobbins to vary slightly in both weight and length. Generally speaking our big bobbins contain around 110-140m of yarn and weigh between 750g to just over 1kg.

What can I make with t-shirt yarn?

It’s sounds naff, but you’re only limited by your imagination! Some popular items made out of t-shirt yarn include chunky beach bags, rugs, placemats, hats and scarves. You can find creations from other t-shirt yarn users in our project ideas gallery.
