Bio Shetland is a sport weight, GOTS certified organic, rustic, heathered wool with a wide range of colors perfect for stranded colorwork knitting.  The wool is sourced from mulesing-free farms in South America and is spun and dyed in Turkey.  Bio Shetland is perfect for your next fair isle project or for a lighter weight sweater that you'll wear most of the year.  And plenty of other projects.

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.  

Bio Shetland has good stitch definition with a small halo.  The knitted fabric has good drape and is lightweight.
