Knitting For Olive Soft Silk Mohair
|Availability:||In stock (5)|
This mother-daughter team of Copenhagen, Denmark first started designing knitwear patterns for babies and toddlers, and then added adult-sized patterns. In their effort to improve the knitting experience, they created Knitting for Olive yarns. Their vision is to offer high-quality yarns made of pure natural fibers, created with respect for both the animals and our environment.
The Mohair comes from angora goats bred in South Africa, and the yarn is also produced locally. The yarns are traceable back to the individual farms. The Mohair is certified sustainable and RMS (Responsible Mohair Standard). The yarn is produced with high respect for animal wellbeing, and with social responsibility. Our spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals. The Silk in our Soft Silk Mohair is cruelty free. The silk fibers are collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape. This means that the silk worms are not killed in the process as they are in conventional silk production.
