More and more knitters are concerned about the origin of the wool they are using and about the conditions of the Merino sheep. Katia wants you to continue enjoying knitting without any worries about the welfare of the sheep. For this reason, in addition to the Mulesing Free seal, which guarantees that no Australian sheep have undergone this practice, a large part of the 100% Merino Wool in their catalog comes from South America. Baby Nature is also GOTS certified.
The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification is the world's leading standard in textiles processing made with fibers from organic agriculture. It contains clear requirements about caring for the environment throughout the organic textile supply chain while maintaining compliance with social responsibility. The Global Organic Textile Standard ensures the traceability of wool and cotton from its origin to the final consumer and also guarantees the ecological and biodegradable requirements regarding the dying colors used.
