Item details

Sweet Sweet Love- This Valentine's colourway will have you in love with your new sock WIP. This white, pink and red striping yarn works from white through 2 shades of pink to red and back again creating a gradient of stripes on either side of the red and white highlights. These stripes are combined with a pink mini that is lightly speckled with deep red. This skein is hand wound into a beautiful striped ball. Each stripe knits approximately 4 rounds of a 64 st count sock.

My yarn is dyed using a commercial acid dye that conforms to Global Organic Textile Standard(GOTS) for Organic Fiber Processing. It is also on an Organic eco-processed wool base that is GOTS certified making this yarn a very eco-friendly knitting option. You can feel good about knitting with a product that protects both you, and the earth from unwanted chemicals and pollutants.

This yarn is 80% organic wool with 20% nylon for strength on a 100g skein giving a generous 370 yards or 338 meters.

While this is an Eco processed yarn I do recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry.

For more information about my organic yarn base and Eco processing please take a look at my FAQ section.


FAQs

Organic wool is fiber that meets 2 main requirements. Firstly, is a social and fair trade requirement, that guarantees correct social and labour practices from farm to consumer and all the steps in between. Secondly, is an environmental protection requirement. This requirement ensures no harmful chemicals are used in any stage of production from sheep to consumer.

Yes, I use a commercial acid dye certified by the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) for organic fiber processing.

Yes, the GOTS certified dyes I use are a commercial acid dye and are therefore colour fast to the same standard as any acid dye. I do however recommend hand washing in cool water with a gentle wool wash.

Eco processing is not a traditional superwash process but it does produce a wool product that is anti shrink and anti felting. This process was developed in Europe and is also certified by the GOTS for organic fiber processing. While you can put your beautiful finished object into the washing machine on a cold cycle, I recommend that they be hand washed in cool water for the best longevity of colour and fiber.
