We purchase certified organic wool and cotton and we produce and dye the yarn in a small spinning mill in Portugal. The production process is also certified to ensure sustainable production without the use of undesirable and harmful chemicals.
The raw cotton comes from South America, where it is possible to grow organic cotton due to the perfect combination of warm weather and fertile soil without having to add huge amounts of water. The cotton fields are placed near streams from the mountains and nearby rivers. Here it is sown, grown and harvested without the use of chemical pesticides and artificial fertilizer with a minimum of irrigation. The natural growth creates longer cotton fibers and results in an incredibly soft high-quality yarn.
Our merino wool also comes from South America. The wool is certified organic which means that the wool is produced with focus on animal welfare and of course mulesing-free.
The certificate also ensures safe and hygienic working conditions and fair wages for workers and farmers.
We only purchase certified mohair fibers to ensure all considerations are made towards animal welfare, environment and local communities. The mohair fibers come from Africa and are spun and dyed in Italy according to the same high standards as our organic cotton and wool.
