The raw material for our eco-virgin wool SEMILLA is prepared in Germany and spun in Italy. The raw material is GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard), the world's leading standard for the processing of textiles from organically grown natural fibers. At a high level, it defines environmental requirements along the entire production chain and at the same time social criteria’s has to be met.
This means that the sheep are kept in accordance with recognized organic standards, lovingly and gently shorn and receive antibiotics only in absolute exceptional cases.
The colors used are also GOTS certified. Which means they are free from harmful substances such as toxic heavy metals and biodegradable. Only the production process is not certified. It is very difficult to find spinning mills, that can guarantee a GOTS-certified manufacturing process, as it requires a complete separation of the production process for GOTS fibers from conventional fibers.
