    Sustainable wool yarn 

    Önling works with 2 family-run yarn mills in Italy, which produce the majority of our yarns for us. Both have a long history with and a strong focus on sustainability in their production. In addition to producing a wide range of organic yarns, with a strong focus on traceability and dyeing in accordance with OEKO-TEX standards, these spinning companies have set themselves a number of ambitious sustainability goals.  One spinning mill is Zero Emission certified as the production exclusively uses power from renewable energy, just as they have eliminated the use of single-use plastics in their production, and have a strong focus on reusing excess resources. 

    Our yarns range from the 100% organic and undyed yarn, which we call Önling Nature Yarn, to our own dyed Önling yarns, which are sustainably produced according to ecological standards and in accordance with Sustainawool standards.
