Are Greener Shades Dyes Organic?

Q: Are Your Dyes Organic Certified?

A: We are unable to call or label these dyes as “Organic” as they are an intermediate step to a finished product. These dyes do comply with the Global Organic Textile Standard 6.0 criteria for organic processing. This means that if you would like to get your yarn certified and call it organic, you can now dye the yarn and still create a product that will comply to organic standards and label it as such.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed through collaboration by leading standard setters with the aim of defining requirements that are recognised world-wide and that ensure the organic status of textiles from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labelling in order to provide credible assurance to the consumer.
