Methow 3 is a sumptuous velvet. A great choice for “kids and pets” upholstery projects where you need a hard-working fabric that is stain resistant. We heat set the Tencel, which helps the fabric be stain resistant. Also great for poufs and pillows and most any application needing a heavyweight super plush velvet.
The goal of the OekoTex 100 fabric safety standard (www.oeko-tex.com) is to ensure that products pose no risk to human health, or to any living thing.
The October 25, 2008 edition of the Seattle Post Intelligencer lamented the demise, in just one year, of seven of the 83 Orca Whales still migrating to the Puget Sound. Two of the seven were child bearing age females, a class with normally extremely low mortality. Scientists speculate, that, in part, the whales are dyeing because they are starving and, when they rely on their own blubber, industrial chemicals stored in their blubber become available to them in toxic doses. Many of the chemicals in the blubber are the same toxic chemicals used routinely in textile production. Not in ours
