Echt means "Real" in German. This is a yarn that lives up to its promise, made of high quality cotton sourced from South Carolina from verifiably certified organic farms. The processing of the fibers, from spinning, twisting, and dyeing, is completed in Germany, and certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100 product class 1.
OEKO-TEX® tests for harmful substances are fundamentally based on the respective purpose of the textiles and materials. The more intensive the skin contact of a product and the more sensitive the skin, the stricter the human-ecological requirements that need to be complied with.
