The Mohair comes from angora goats bred in South Africa, and the yarn is also produced locally. Theirr yarns are traceable back to the individual farms, which means they know exactly which farms, farmers, and goats their wool comes from.
Their Mohair is certified sustainable and RMS (Responsible Mohair Standard). The yarn is produced with high respect for animal wellbeing, and with social responsibility. Their spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.
The Silk in their Soft Silk Mohair is cruelty free. The silk fibres are collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape. This means that the silk worms are not killed in the process as they are in conventional silk production.
The yarn is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificeret
