Why Organic Matters
By: Joanne Seiff
 

Many of us choose organic foods at the grocery store or farmerís 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 soilís health, the waterís purity, and the health of wild animals like birds, bugs, and bunnies, too.

Lion Brandís 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. Itíll do our environment, and the new baby, a whole lot of good.
