Chickadee is a little darling, soft, plump, springy, and eager to loop into intricate color patterns or delicate textures. Its three plies, spun from soft organic wool, are twisted together firmly enough to be sturdy, yet gently enough to be soft and cushiony.
American wool vs. Organic Wool

For our Organic Heathers, we chose to use GOTS-certified Organic Wool. GOTS is the most comprehensive organic textile certification available. GOTS certification importantly ensures three mutually reinforcing categories of responsibility:

The sheep are raised in a humane manner aligning with organic farming standards. Mulesing is not allowed.

Fair labor practices that ensure respect for the farmers and others that participate in the process from sheep to finished fiber.

Protection of the environment, ensuring that no harmful chemicals, no heavy metals, formaldehydes, fluorocarbons, chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used at any point from ranch to production facility. 

We would be careful not to oversell it – “Organic” is not a panacea. You could ship wool to the moon and back and still call it Organic. We find many of the specific stipulations to be fairly bewildering and needlessly strict in some cases, lax in others. That said, we rest easy knowing that at its core, this wool was produced and processed ethically, and our vision as steadfast as ever.
The result of this exquisite wool, spun by our tireless Italian partners, has exceeded our lofty dreams. We hope you’ll agree.
