Tarn Yarn


Tarn yarn (T-shirt yarn) is fast becoming the coolest alternative to traditional wool. It’s a new chunky, fun yarn making waves in South African knitting and crochet circles.

Tarn is locally made from end-of-run T-shirt material (consisting of 98% cotton and 2% elastane), making it completely ecofriendly and easily accessible across the country.

Due to fashion industry trends and the ecofriendly factor, tarn’s options and colours may vary slightly and are continuously changing, but they’re available in dozens of shades to suit any season.

Tarn Yarn can be bought in 100m bobbins for R110 each via tarnsa.co.za.
