(We are dismayed by the events that have come to light regarding the business practices at Quince & Co. We do not wish to support a company that does not align with our shops values. We will continue to sell our current stock of their products, and have no plan to re-stock until we feel confident that the new leadership at the company is committed to making changes.
We stand behind the quality of their products (this has never been in question). Please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.)
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. Organic Heathers are 100% Organic Wool, made in Italy.
For our Organic Heathers, we chose to use GOTS-certified Organic Wool. 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.
