O-Wash Chunky (100% wool)
O-Wash Chunky is a 100% machine-washable certified organic merino wool chunky weight yarn from O-Wool. It is GOTS-certified, which means that it is grown, processed, and dyed in an environmentally sustainable way. A proprietary certified organic polymer is used to make the O-Wash line machine washable.
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.
The yarn is dyed "tonally," so you should treat it as you would a hand-dyed yarn, alternating skeins.
O-Wool is a woman-owned yarn business based in Philadelphia. You can learn more about O-Wool here.
O-Wash Chunky has excellent stitch definition. The knitted fabric has good drape for a heavier knitted fabric.
