Many of us choose organic foods at the grocery store or
farmer’s market, especially when it comes to feeding babies and children. Why? Eating
organic foods mean that we ingest less pesticide. Organic farming methods are great for
the environment -- improving the soil’s health, the water’s purity, and the health
of wild animals like birds, bugs, and bunnies, too.
Lion Brand’s new yarn, Organic Cotton, comes from that same soil. This naturally
grown cotton grows in 4 natural colors, right on the plant, so that no dyes are
used. This yarn is special, harvested and sorted by hand, free of the pesticides and
herbicides that are typically used in growing cotton. Now these subtle earth tones
are available to knitters. This all-natural, soft and versatile new yarn is ideal for
all sorts of projects, from baby clothing to luxurious clothing and items for your home.

Even when it comes to how we buy our yarn, we have choices to make. When we knit, we
now have the opportunity to knit organic. Making a new baby something special? Knit with
Lion Brand Organic Cotton with a clear conscience. It’ll do our environment, and the
new baby, a whole lot of good.
