Bliss

BCI Cotton

Here at Knitup, we use 100% cotton, which is a biodegradable and renewable fibre that is widely used in many of our clothing. Being such a mainstream commodity, cotton is a vital source of income for millions of people. Knitup uses BCI cotton, a global not-for-profit organization that aims to promote sustainable growth and sourcing practices, while supporting the livelihoods of the farming communities. Cotton is one of the most versatile and commonly used materials in the world - that’s why it’s essential that we rely on sustainability programs to ensure our standards of sustainability are continuously met.

Dreams

Total Easy Care Merino Wool

Knitup uses merino wool that is 100% natural, biodegradable and mulesing-free. So, what exactly does that mean? Our fine wool is sourced from merino sheep living on farms in Australia. Merino sheep naturally shed once a year, and when they do, we procure that fleece to give you your shiny and soft yet incredibly warm yarn. Our merino-wool is made from worsted-spun yarns that have been primed with the Total Easy Care treatment; this helps your garments withstand multiple rounds of machine washes without losing their shape, appearance or quality.
