The Reason for Rosy Green Wool

Rosy Green Wool is the result of a passionate desire to produce a hand knitting yarn that is certified organic through every aspect of production and product delivery. From the farms in Patagonia where the original fleece is sourced, through the spinning and dyeing process in the UK and to both distribution centers world wide, Rosy Green Wool meets the strict standards of the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS).

What does this mean in a nutshell?

+ the sheep do not have to suffer painful mulesing
+ the wool production does not pollute the environment with dangerous chemicals
+ the workers are treated fairly
+ the yarn is under strict controls for harmful residues

The result? Rosy Green Wool produces the finest, GOTS certified organic yarn from Merino and rare breed sheep wool guaranteed good for the environment, sheep, and humans.

GOTS is Great – But What About the Yarn?

Rosy Green Wool isn’t just a yarn you can feel great about – it’s a yarn that feels great to knit, crochet and wear.  Two weights of super wash 100% merino are available – Cheeky Merino Joy (sport) and Big Merino Hug (worsted).  The 19-color palette is the same for both weights and offers a range of colors that are very wearable and easy to combine for colorwork. Cheeky Merino Joy and Big Merino Hug combine baby-friendly softness with machine-washability making them excellent choices for baby garments and blankets as well as a wide range of close-to-the-skin garments including sweaters, shawls, cowls, hats and mittens.
