Rosy Green Wool Big Merino Hug!

Rosy Green Wool Big Merino Hug!

Amy Murphy

Rosy Green Wool Big Merino Hug is now fully stocked at WoolWinders Yarn Shop! This 100% organic merino wool and the entire production process used to bring the yarn to us are certified organic according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

We love this wool for children's garments (it's machine washable!) and anything worn next-to-skin.

What does organic mean when we're talking about wool?

Rosy Green Wool organic yarns are completely certified according to GOTS, the Global Organic Textile Standard. With GOTS you can be sure that

  • the sheep do not have to suffer painful mulesing surgery
  • the wool production does not pollute the environment with dangerous chemicals
  • the workers are treated fairly
  • the yarn is under strict controls for harmful residues

The wool for Rosy Green Wool comes from Merino sheep in Patagonia, one of the most beautiful and in large part untouched landscapes on earth.

GOTS — Good for Sheep, Good for the Environment, and Good for Humans!
