Yearn Worthy Yarn: Tahki Jeans

Ever get the urge to revisit the 80’s, pining away for your acid wash jeans? What if you could knit with a variety of jean washes? Would that sooth your soul enough to put down the crimping iron?

Well Tahki Jeans yarn has got you covered.

This tape yarn is made from 100% organic cotton and colored with low-impact dyes that are environmentally-friendly.

Available is Denim, Smoke, Slate and even Kaki. Slate might be the perfect color to get your acid wash fix. So go ahead give it a whirl. Re-live the days of mall bangs and neon. Or you could try something a bit more conventional.
