Eco Tweed DK is a GOTS-certified yarn that is soft enough to be worn next to the skin – it is ideal for sweaters and shawls, as well as hats and other accessories. (GOTS = Global Organic Textile Standard).
The softness of this yarn come from its blend of alpaca, wool, and Lyocell (cellulosic viscose). While many viscose fibres are toxic to the environment, the viscose in Eco Tweed DK is completely benign and free of any toxic chemicals.
For best results, this yarn should be hand washed in cool water and lain flat to dry. High temperatures is not usually good for viscose fibres.
