What does GOTS mean?
Organically produced fibre is required in GOTS.
This means that on the organic farm no GMOs, no artificial fertilisers and no agro-chemicals are used. Instead certified organic farmers use crop rotation and alternative methods of crop production
GOTS covers textile processing, manufacture, labelling and sale of clothes and other products through to the final consumer.
Permitted chemicals allowed in textile processing meet stringent criteria for environmental and human health (exceeding Greenpeace Detox requirements).
By using GOTS certified wool, the effects are.
46% less CO2 emissions.
70% less water consumption.
