Chickadee is a little darling, soft, plump, springy, and eager to loop into intricate color patterns or delicate textures. Its three plies, spun from soft organic wool, are twisted together firmly enough to be sturdy, yet gently enough to be soft and cushiony. Organic Heathers are 100% Organic Wool, made in Italy.
DISCLAIMER: Cream City Yarn believes in fair business practices including fair hiring practices, and compensation packages. It has come to our attention that Quince & Co./Twig and Horn have exploited some applicants, employees and/or contractors unfairly. Until this matter is resolved, Cream City Yarn will not be making further wholesale purchases.
For our Organic Heathers, we chose to use GOTS-certified Organic Wool. GOTS certification importantly ensures three mutually reinforcing categories of responsibility:
- The sheep are raised in a humane manner aligning with organic farming standards. Mulesing is not allowed.
- Fair labor practices that ensure respect for the farmers and others that participate in the process from sheep to finished fiber.
- Protection of the environment, ensuring that no harmful chemicals, no heavy metals, formaldehydes, fluorocarbons, chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used at any point from ranch to production facility.
