This yarn combines beautiful fine wool with non-violent soft Eri silk. With Eri silk, the caterpillars are allowed to hatch out of the cocoon before the thread is extracted. The yarn has a fine shimmer and is wonderfully soft. The silk content makes it machine washable – without any superwash treatment. Semilla Silkbloom comes with GOTS seal, making it perfect not only for adult nature lovers, but also for babies and toddlers.
It is the perfect multi-talented yarn for accessories as well as jumpers, jackets and children’s clothing. The colour palette is a selection of the most beautiful Semilla colours that work together harmoniously.
What does it mean that the yarn is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified? With the GOTS seal, everything is checked: from animal welfare to pollutant-free dyes and environmentally friendly production to fair wages for all involved and compliance with strict social criteria. In our opinion, the GOTS seal is the strictest eco-seal in the textile industry – much more comprehensive than, for example, Oeko-Tex 100. By the way, the raw wool comes from Argentina and is mulesing-free. It is spun and dyed in Italy.
