We are in love with this unusual little yarn in our shop - it's not something you'll see in many shops which makes us love it all the more. It's organic and that means many great things, not just the 'chemical' thing but also careful use of water and human rights for the workers and loads of other things you can read about here. I think the organic thing makes it perfect for babies, the idea that we're looking after the earth for them to inherit. Ahhhh. 

Anyway, it's a lovely handle, smooth because of the cotton but with a little fluff to it from the wool. The way the fibres take dye is a little different too so there's a marl to each colour which adds some real depth - you can see it in the photos. It's definitely worth noting that the dye lots can be *very* different due to the organic nature. We'll send the same dye lot where we can obviously, but if you're picking up an odd ball to finish a project we'd recommend you give us a call to check. 

And finally, this does work on a 30 degree gentle wash, I'd go with a wool wash, but if you do anything even a little out of the ordinary it felts like a beauty. You can use that to your advantage, obviously, but not if you've already made a jumper that fits perfectly.
