Eco Tweed DK is quickly becoming a store favourite. This woolen spun yarn is lofty and lightweight, making it the perfect yarn for garments. The GOTS classes all shorn animal fibres as “wool” (which is also consistent with Canadian Government Textile Labelling Standards), they have to call it wool, but it’s actually 50% Wool, 25% Alpaca (which accounts for the luxurious softness of this yarn) and 25% Cellulosic Viscose (Lyocell.)

A little-known fact is that many viscose fibres are toxic to the environment – the viscose in Eco Tweed DK is very different! Using the Lyocell process, this viscose is completely benign and free of any toxic chemicals! Because this yarn is woolen spun, more air is trapped alongside the fibres, giving it a larger number of meters per skein.
