OUR YARN Our high quality yarn is made of 100% natural fibers and is certified cruelty-free. Our yarn is produced following ethical and environmental guidelines. The raw materials come from South Africa, where mulesing is not practiced. The silk in our Silk-Mohair base is also certified cruelty-free, which is still a rare certification. Our whole range of colours are totally unique and dyes used are free from harmful chemicals. A sustainable approach is therefore in place throughout to respect local and global resources and reflect our values at Along avec Anna.
