As a company, Scheepjes continue to take steps forward in considering our environmental impact and listening to our customer’s values. This has led to the creation of our new sustainably produced, eco conscious and vegan friendly yarn; Organicon. Made from 100% natural organic cotton fibre, this yarn is not only good for you, but for the planet. By doing our part to reduce resource consumption and promote consciously produced products in the development of this yarn, we as a community of crafters can embody the ethos of Organicon and make a difference together.
Scheepjes Organicon yarn has GOTS certification.
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)
GOTS certification 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 to ensure the continuing fertility of the land it is grown on. It also ensures a high level of social compliance for farmers and workers.
ORGANICON yarn is both environmentally responsible and sustainable.
Dyes used to dye our ORGANICON yarn are also GOTS certified and have the highest sustainability index possible for textile manufacture, ensuring minimum use of water and energy.
Scheepjes Organicon is an Eco Conscious yarn.
