BIO SHETLAND is a beautiful soft GOTS certified organic worsted melange wool yarn. Each color has many shades which gives a distinct look to the final product. The yarn is perfect for kids as well as adult garments. Ideal for structured knitting, lace and fair-isle. BIO SHETLAND works well on the loom as well as the knitting machine. Ideal if you love traditional rustic yarns.

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) focuses on the environment and sustainability in all stages of the manufacturing process. Demands in relation to e.g. the dying process, handling of waste water and energy usage is monitored on an ongoing basis, along with social and work related aspects of the manufacturing process. The final yarn quality is inspected. GOTS is a world acknowledged environmental branding which only certified distributors may use.

GOTS certification requires that all stages of the production are ecologically, environmentally, and ethically sustainable from start to finish. The growing conditions, dye processes, waste water treatment, as well as fair and ethical conditions for all workers must meet GOTS standards. GOTS is the only internationally recognized organic certification – and the only one with a social justice component to ensure fair treatment for the people who do the labor to produce your yarns. Kelbourne Woolens is proud to also be a GOTS Certified company.

Semilla Melange is woolen-spun and the first BC Garn yarn to be GOTS certified. Light and airy, soft and lofty, Semilla Melange is a beautiful heather yarn perfect for sweaters. Semilla Melange also felts beautifully.
