This darning thread is made from 100% organic merino wool and is great for mending knitted wool apparel or cloth diaper covers and for darning holes in socks or other garments.
Ruskovilla has been manufacturing environmentally friendly textiles in Finland since 1981. They are deeply committed to quality during every phase of production; from the raw materials to the finished product, the company takes people and environment into consideration.
The wool is ethically produced organic merino wool from Argentina and Uruguay and is produced according to the criteria of IVN (Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e.V.). The yarn is spun by a German spinnery, and it is certified by IMO (Institute for Marketecology). The spinnery uses as few synthetic chemicals as possible for dying woollen yarn. The dying process takes place in closed system with the use of reactive dyes causing the fibres to react completly with the dye and preventing the dyes from running. Therefore, reactive dyes are safer option for garments that are in direct contact with the skin. No chrome dyes or heavy metal salts are used in the organic production process. Any harmless auxiliary products that are indispensible in the dyeing process are flushed out in the post-dyeing rinsing process.
Made in Finland.
Care: Hand wash and lay flat to dry.
