For a long time now I have wanted to be environmentally friendly in the choices I make regarding the yarns I use, and one of these yarns is Organic Cotton - a sustainable and environmentally friendly choice.
My reusable facial wipes are made with 100% organic cotton. They are better for you and the environment as no pesticides are used during the growing of the fibre. For more information on organic cotton, see my page 'Benefits of Organic Cotton'.
Each set of my reusable facial wipes comprises of 4 round wipes (approximately 7cm diameter) in off white and 1 square wipe (9cm square) in light blue. More colours to follow.
Here's some information about the yarn I use for the coloured facial wipes in this set:
Scheepjes Organicon holds the GOTS certification which guarantees through traceability that the cotton has been grown on organic certified fields without the use of chemical fertilisers, farmed in a sustainable manner and in a way that ensures the continuing fertility of the land it is grown on. The dyes used are also GOTS-certified and have the highest sustainability index possible for textile manufacture.
By harnessing a 100% biological wastewater treatment approach in the production process of Scheepjes Organicon, wastewater from the production of this yarn is safely recycled and repurposed.
A vegan friendly yarn is one that contains no animal products or by-products. From the dyes used to colour this yarn, to its 100% plant-based fibre, Scheepjes Organicon respects the welfare of animals and offers a high-quality alternative for all conscious crafters.
