Balance offers a unique, tweedy appearance due to its cotton/wool blend that is warm but not too warm. The certified organic cotton from Texas offers breathability and smoothness while the certified organic merino adds body, warmth, and spring. Balance is processed in Midwestern and Northeastern USA in accordance with organic guidelines, with the exception of specific colors to achieve vivid colors. Please alternate skeins as you knit to omit color pooling in finished garment.
