Select Color:

Baby Cotton Organic Mercerized is an incredibly strong, shinier version of our organic superstar; Baby Cotton. 

Mercerizing makes cotton yarn glossy and shiny, it keeps its shape and doesn’t shrink in the wash. The yarn becomes extremely durable and more resistant to mold. The wonderful depth of color is also characteristic for mercerized cotton. Since the fibers can absorb more color, the result is a much more intense and lasting color.  

The entire line of Hobbii Baby Cotton is spun from long, flexible fibers from the finest Egyptian cotton. But this mercerized version is something special indeed! 

Mercerizing is a complex process that, among other things, includes immersion in a strong base. But Baby Cotton Organic Mercerized is produced in a new, more sustainable fashion than the traditional process. In specialized plants the reusable alkali from old batteries is extracted, and these are reused to mercerize our Baby Cotton. That way, precious materials are reused in a new, beneficial way. 

The entire process is approved, controlled and complies with all social and environmental quality standards required to achieve a GOTS certification. It’s the highest achievable standard in the production of organic textiles.

About GOTS
The GOTS certification is an internationally recognized standard, which is used for the environmentally friendly and socially responsible production of ecological textiles. It stands for very high demands in all parts of the supply chain, from when the raw goods are harvested, to you having the finished product on your needles.
