Indicated colors are Organic Heathers. These colors use GOTS-certified Organic Wool. GOTS is the most comprehensive organic textile certification available. GOTS certification importantly ensures three mutually reinforcing categories of responsibility:
- The sheep are raised in a humane manner aligning with organic farming standards. Mulesing is not allowed.
- Fair labor practices that ensure respect for the farmers and others that participate in the process from sheep to finished fiber.
- Protection of the environment, ensuring that no harmful chemicals, no heavy metals, formaldehydes, fluorocarbons, chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used at any point from ranch to production facility.
