ABOUT THE ORGANIC PROCESS:
This wool is certified Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Organic wool is from sheep that have been fed with grass lacking fertilizers or pesticides. All their food is natural and also the use of drugs in these animals is totally controlled. The cultivation, collection, spinning and dyeing process of this cotton is certified as organic (ecological). The lack of toxic residues (pesticides and bleaches) makes the organic cotton yarn much softer than the common cotton yarn; it “breathes” more and prevents allergies derived from chemical products.
You can use a washing machine - on a cold delicate wool program, but hand washing is always best.
