The Fiber Co. stands for exclusive wool and wonderful blends, for example with baby alpaca, baby lama, silk, bamboo and merino. The result is wonderful yarns for knitting and crocheting.
When purchasing fibers and wool, the Fiber Co. pays attention to sustainable production, eco-friendly colors and does not purchase any wool Regions where mulesing is practiced.
The founder Daphne Marinopoulos said in an interview:
"And it was always about the three p: people, planet, profit.
We kept asking ourselves how we can become even more sustainable. We know that sustainability is the most important factor if you want to be successful in the long term. We see this as an ongoing process and we are constantly trying to improve the environmental compatibility of our products. "
Most of the wool comes from Peru. The main supplier has received the Oeko Tex certificate, which stands for pollutant-free colors. There the wool is delivered from the small farmers in the highlands of Peru to two large spinning mills and dyed after spinning.
