We are pleased to present the first GOTS certified yarn of the Etelle brand.
Eco Tweed DK is a wonderful yarn to use close to the skin - from sweaters and shawls to classic accessories! Since GOTS classifies all sheared animal fibers as "wool" (which also meets Canadian government textile labeling standards), we have to call it wool, but it is actually 50% wool, 25% alpaca (which explains the luxurious softness of this yarn) and 25% cellulosic viscose (Lyocell.) A little known fact is that many viscose fibers are toxic to the environment - the viscose in Eco Tweed DK is very different! Thanks to the Lyocell process, this viscose is completely harmless and free of any toxic chemicals!
Good knitting! ♥
