What is OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100? It is a guarantee, that there has not been used any harmful chemicals to produce the product, that bears the logo. To be able to put this logo on some of my qualities, my company had to be certified. Even though my manufacturer / spinning mill is certified, I, as an intermediary, also must be certified, to write, that my yarn is produced according to OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100.
It is a comprehensive and expensive process, but for me, it is important to guide my customers rather than misleading them. Over the years I have always had a close dialog with my manufacturers. For me, it has been very important, to know a lot about how my yarns have been produced, where the fibers come from and under what conditions it is produced. But it is also important for me to see, where I can improve my business in terms of production.
It is no secret, I do not always have the answers for everything, but I have been persistent and has become much wiser over the years. It has always been important to me, to be able to vouch for what I sell. When I again asked my manufacturer in Peru, how my qualities are produced, I was happy, when they told me, that my Yaku and Pimabomuld are produced according to OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100. Therefore, I did not think long, and has now become OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certified myself. Thus, I can assure knitters and crocheters, that no harmful chemicals have been used in my yarns.
My Lamauld, Tynd Lamauld and Lamatweed, which are also produced in Peru, are also produced according to OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100. Since it, as a manufacturer, unfortunately is very expensive to be certified on one fiber, and I am their only customer producing yarn with llama fibers, they chose not to be certified on that fiber. If I am persistent, that might also happen one day.
In the future you will find this logo on my labels. You can already find it on my 2 organic qualities Økologisk Sommeruld and Økologisk Hverdagsuld. So, in the future, when you buy yarn, remember to look after the OEKO-TEX logo on the label. There must be a logo on it – text is unfortunately not enough. You can possibly also look after the certificate on the homepage, where you buy your OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certified yarn.
You will find my certificate HERE in my web shop.
My license number is 2176-346.
CaMaRose's OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification applies to the following qualities:
Together with my OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certificate, I was sent an OEKO-TEX logo, which I can now put on my labels on the certified products. It is not allowed to just write on a label that something is OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 if the product is not certified. If it is certified, you can place a logo, as a guarantee to the customer, that this certificate is correct.
Best wishes, Trine/CaMaRose
