Description

BC Yarn - Soft Silk

Soft Silk from BC Yarn is a loosely spun yarn made from bourette silk. It has the pleasant climatic characteristics of silk, but is not as cool or as smooth as many mulberry silk yarns. This is because after the long-fibered mulberry silk is extracted from the main part of the cocoon, its remnants are used to make bourette silk. This "waste product" interspersed with irregularities has its price: a favorable one, namely.

Responsibility

Soft Silk is spun from scraps in India. 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.
