Semilla Melange is Semilla's woolen-spun cousin, and the first BC Garn yarn to be GOTS certified. This 2-ply yarn is light, airy, soft, and lofty, and comes in beautiful heathered shades perfect for sweaters. Semilla Melange also felts and weaves beautifully - it has a wonderful bloom after washing.
What is GOTS certification? The Global Organic Textile Standard requires that all stages of production are ecologically, environmentally, and ethically sustainable from start to finish. The growing conditions, dye processes, waste water treatment, and fair and ethical working conditions must meet GOTS standards. GOTS is the only internationally recognized organic certification for yarn.
