Estelle Eco Tweed DK
If you've been searching for some tweedy, soft-but-rustic organic yarn, you've come to the right place! Eco Tweed DK is a wonderful yarn for use next to the skin – from sweaters and shawls to classic accessories.
Here's a little shop talk for you: because the GOTS classes all shorn animal fibres as “wool” (which is also consistent with Canadian Government Textile Labelling Standards), we have to call it wool, but it’s actually 50% Wool, 25% Alpaca (which accounts for the luxurious softness of this yarn) and 25% Cellulosic Viscose (Lyocell.) A little-known fact is that many viscose fibres are toxic to the environment – the viscose in Eco Tweed DK is very different. Using the Lyocell process, this viscose is completely benign and free of any toxic chemicals... sounds like a win-win situation to us. Start the car!
