BIO LANA is pure organic wool (biological / ecological). It is a soft, versatile yarn that can be used for both clothing to create decorative objects and unique creations that give our home a warm and cozy feel. Its balanced range of natural tones and colours allows us to play with them and create wonderful jacquard designs.
Organic wool is from sheep that have been fed with grass lacking fertilizers or pesticides. All their food is natural and also the use of drugs in these animals is totally controlled.
The entire chain from grass to spinning, dyeing and subsequent storage is certified to ensure high quality product respecting the need for environmental sustainability. This certification guarantees that the wool is tested and controlled at all stages of processing and is free of harmful substances.
