A wonderfully soft cotton refined with 10% luxurious cashmere. This delicious combination makes this GOTS certified organic yarn a a fabulous choice for all weather, for inside and outside, for young and old.
This yarn, although wonderfully soft is not fluffy-hairy at all, and is machine washable, so very suitable for babies.
We love the range of pretty colours too!

BC Garn was founded in Denmark in the 90s by Bo Carstensen, son of a weaver and a carpet wool trader. So it's no wonder that their high-quality line up is all about colour!
Their core business has evolved from weaving yarns to the production of luxury organic and ecologically-conscious hand knitting yarns at great prices.
Many of BC Garn's yarns are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) - the highest international standard for organic fibre production.
