Eco Wool

posted in: Life, sustainability | 0

I just received my Eco Ull from AYarnOutlet (who was very nice to work with and has a huge selection of yarns). I purchased 2 skeins of Natural and 2 skeins of Charcoal. It is even more beautiful than hoped! Amazingly soft, buoyant and substantial and I love the natural colors. They have a depth and texture unlike yarn that has been highly processed and dyed. Eco Ull is an eco friendly organic wool with no additives; like carbonization agents, chlorides, softeners, super-wash treatment or other chemicals. The sheep are raised and the wool is harvested in Germany, within the guidelines for ecological agriculture under the EU Regulation. It is certified by Skal International. The yarn is made only in the natural colors of the wool itself.

I also could not resist purchasing this skein of Ultra Alpaca. It is a blend of Alpaca and Peruvian Highland wool, in a beautiful shade of tuquoisey teal, which I love.

Can’t wait to get my hands into this!

    Ultra Alpaca is my favorite yarn to work with. I made both my brother and husband hats (I doubled up the yarn to make them warm for the winter), and they both just love the feel of the fibers and how warm it keeps their heads.

    I will have to check out the eco ull. I always love finding new yarns to work with.
