Yearn Worthy Yarn: Debbie Bliss Eco

Listen up Debbie Bliss fans, this yarn brand now carries a cute little eco yarn – exactly what we’ve all been waiting for.

Debbie Bliss Eco is an organic cotton that is the perfect aran/worsted weight yarn that comes in eighteen bright colors great for the turn of the season. The yarn is dyed using non-toxic dyes and the water is reclaimed and recycled during the dying process.

The other awesome thing about this yarn is where its fiber comes from. The organic cotton used to create this yarn is processed by Bio Re, a textile chain that works with farmers in India and Tanzania to produce certified organic cotton.

You can follow the projects of Bio Re from start to finish in their very open and seemingly transparent production chain. The company adheres to strict guidelines that covers the economic, environmental and human capital of it’s production.

It is quite impressive to see these three very important things being used and paid attention to in a successful and meaningful way. Knowing the way that Bio Re operates will definitely make me move this yarn up on my to knit with list.
