Scheepjes Organicon was created, a vegan-friendly and sustainably produced yarn made of 100% organic cotton. We see more and more that companies opt for sustainable production methods. This provides several advantages. Organic farming is beneficial for water quality, the fertility of the land and energy consumption, while the organic cotton fiber is wonderfully soft. Organicon has the EN 71-3 quality mark, which means that the yarn is suitable for people, including babies and toddlers, with sensitive skin. Scheepjes Organicon is available in 21 light and fresh pastel shades, including some neutrals, all of which can be combined beautifully. The recommended needle size is 3.00mm. A ball of Scheepjes Organicon weighs 50 grams and has a running length of 170 meters (thickness fingering)
