Organic Shetland

BC Yarn's GOTS certified organic Shetland is a beautifully pristine yarn perfect for fair isle knitting. Why the yarn is only called "Shetland Type" and not Shetland wool? The yarn does not come from the Shetland Islands, because there are no GOTS certified farms there yet. But the Bio Shetland looks the same, has the same characteristics and is even a bit softer than the conventional Shetland wool. The huge coordinated color palette is a great premise for colorful knitting patterns.


The raw wool comes from South America, is of course mulesing-free and is spun and dyed in Italy.
BC Yarn focuses on GOTS certified yarns. Currently, 15 BC Yarn qualities are GOTS certified and thus verifiably produced according to strict animal and environmental protection standards. By the way, the GOTS seal is in a way also a guarantor for fair trade, because in all stages of production also criteria like fair wages, labor protection and working conditions, social responsibility and anti-corruption guarantees are checked. Currently, BC Yarn is working on two yarn innovations that are produced with non-violent silk, i.e. silk for the extraction of which the silkworms do not have to die.
