Take sustainable fashion to the next level with our IMO | GOTS Eco Sock yarn!

This 3-ply, certified organic Merino wool base is "eco-processed". This is a non-conventional superwash treatment that does not use chlorine, employs natural salts as an oxidization agent, and uses less resources overall. It is anti-felt and anti-shrink, and is IMO/GOTS certified.

What is IMO? The International Maritime Organization's objectives can be best summed up by its slogan—"Safe, secure, and efficient shipping on clean oceans."  The purpose of the IMO is to establish intergovernmental regulations concerning maritime trade, safe shipping, and access to the seas. In addition, it also sets the rules for preventing ocean pollution and accidents.

GOTS is 100% certified Global Organic Textile Standard merino. Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a world-wide acknowledged environmental branding. GOTS is a guarantee to emphasize the environment and sustainability in all stages of the manufacturing process. Requirements include the handling of waste water and energy usage, along with social ethics and worker related aspects of the manufacturing process. The final yarn's quality is also inspected.

Perfect for socks, shawls, light sweaters, and summer tops. 

Wool is imported from Europe and spun in Canada.

Dye Lots: Where you see the same colour listed twice but with a different 'L#' suffix, this is indicating there are 2 dye lots in stock.  For example 'Linen-L11' and 'Linen-L12' are the same colour but from different dye lots. For colours with no 'L#' suffix, this indicates there are no dye lots due to the hand-dyed nature of the yarn.
