Estelle Eco Tweed DK
Eco Tweed DK is a subtly tweed yarn that is soft enough for next to skin use, and is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). It's excellent for sweaters, shawls, and any sort of accessories!
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
Because the GOTS classes all shorn animal fibres as “wool”, the label states that the yarn is 75% wool; however, it’s actually 50% Wool, 25% Alpaca (which accounts for the luxurious softness of this yarn). The final 25% is Cellulosic Viscose (Lyocell.) A little-known fact is that many viscose fibres are toxic to the environment – the viscose in Eco Tweed DK is very different! Using the Lyocell process, this viscose is completely benign and free of any toxic chemicals!
