Gordita is a premium ecological wool which we love to use for punch needle embroidery projects using our wooden punch needle. You can also use this wool for knitting or crocheting garments and weaving projects. This mulesing-free Argentinian wool is spun in Italy. This wool is suitable for needles 5-7 mm. 50 gram = 80 meter. Gauge 16 = 10 mm
We call this guilt-free wool:
The raw material of this wool is GOTS certified, the world’s leading standard for good practices in the textile supply chain (both for environmental and social criteria).
Sheep are kept in accordance with recognized organic standards, are lovingly and gently shorn and receive antibiotics only in absolute exceptional cases.
Colors are produced free of harmful substances like toxic heavy metals. Dying this way might – in exceptional cases – impact color fastness of the wool. So don’t hang your blankets or cushions in bright sunlight!
This wool is biodegradable.
Happy sheep and happy people practices in the supply chain. Guilt-free stitching is the best!
