Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair is a luxurious blend of the finest Kid Mohair and Mulberry silk. The Mohair comes from angora goats bred in South Africa, and the yarn is also produced locally. Knitting for Olive yarns are traceable back to the individual farms, which means they know exactly which farms, farmers, and goats their wool comes from.
The Mohair is certified sustainable and RMS (Responsible Mohair Standard). The yarn is produced with high respect for animal wellbeing, and with social responsibility. The spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.
The Silk in Soft Silk Mohair is cruelty free. The silk fibres are collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape. This means that the silk worms are not killed in the process as they are in conventional silk production.
The yarn is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
