You are looking for a yarn which is both light and warm, gentle for your skin and the environment, and, cherry on the cake, which does not make you all itchy, you are on the right page! BC Garn’s Bio Balance is the right yarn to try.
This yarn is, indeed, one of the safe bet of the brand. Made of half cotton and half wool, it is GOTS certified. Both children and adults will like it for its softness.

Its colour palette, with slightly heathered shades going from the most basic to the most fun ones, is large enough to make everybody’s delight.
