Alba is a soft, combed organic sportweight cotton.  It is GOTS-certified organic, which means that it is grown, processed, and dyed in an environmentally sustainable way.  BC Garn is a Danish family-owned business focused on creating deep color palettes with environmentally-friendly yarns.

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification requires that all stages of the production are ecologically, environmentally, and ethically sustainable from start to finish.  The growing conditions, dye processes, waste water treatment, and fair and ethical working conditions must meet GOTS standards. GOTS is the only internationally recognized organic certification.  

Alba has excellent stitch definition.  The knitted fabric has very good drape and is lightweight.
