This no-nonsense DK weight yarn is made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. I love dyeing this in my natural indigo vat and they weave up really well. On top of weaving, this yarn is excellent for crocheting home decor items such as table placemats and cushion covers.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world's leading processing standard for yarn made from organic fibers. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic yarn supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
I'd recommend scouring all undyed yarn before mordanting and dyeing.
