ØKOLOGISK SOMMERULD
ORGANIC – OEKO-TEX® – ENVIRONMENT – SUSTAINABILITY – ANIMAL WELFARE - LIGHTWEIGHT – SOFTNESS – QUALITY

Økologisk Sommeruld (“organic summer wool”) is processed and spun exclusively for CaMaRose out of 100% organic merino and cotton fibres by my European manufacturer, who, like all my manufacturers, shows great care for the environment, animal welfare, health, working conditions, sustainability, and quality.

The 100% organic virgin fibres are spun into a traditional 3 ply which is then dyed with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified colors, creating the 25 even and unique colors custom-made for CaMaRose.

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification ensures that Økologisk Sommeruld is sustainable and has been tested and certified to be free from more than 300 environmental and health-hazardous substances. STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is the pioneering certification when it comes to textiles and the test criteria go far beyond the applicable standards in Denmark and EU. You will find the certification on the yarn label. If you want to know more about STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, please visit www.okotex.dk.

Økologisk Sommeruld is a traditional 3 ply wool blend with 70% organic merino and 30% organic cotton. Økologisk Sommeruld is a fingering weight yarn with 230 meters per 50 g. The recommended gauge is 26-28 sts x 40 rows and the recommended needle size is 2,5-3,5 mm.

The combination of merino wool and cotton makes the yarn light and soft – perfect for baby and children’s knit. The merino-cotton blend is a great alternative to 100% wool and can be used for summer tops, t-shirts, and blouses without being too hot, but warm enough for the cool Nordic summers.

Økologisk Sommeruld in the natural colorway Råhvid 2001 (“off white”) is a fit base for natural dyeing or whenever you want an organic yarn as the base for your dye projects. Økologisk Sommeruld takes the color beautifully and evenly. After being rewound, it is extremely easy to handle in the dyepots and is hardy in the dye process.

The color chart is designed to make it possible to combine neutrals, contrasts, multiple shades of the same color as well as marling by holding two yarns together. The colors are inspired by the colors and lights of the North, and the color chart is regularly expanded in line with current trends to keep the selection updated and inspiring for individual color combinations.

Økologisk Sommeruld is perfect for crocheting. The cotton gives it good stability while the 70% wool prevents it from becoming too heavy - even when crocheting or knitting large blankets.

Økologisk Sommeruld gives you all the benefits of natural fibres combined with high quality, environmental sustainability, animal welfare, and last but not least, you get a product that is nice to work with for hours at a time as you are knitting, crocheting, or embroidering.

If you are looking for an organic 100% wool, have a look at my Økologisk Hverdagsuld (“organic everyday wool”).

I wish you a pleasant experience with Økologisk Sommeruld – a CaMaRose yarn created with the greatest care.
