Visiting Our Local Organic Cotton Supplier

Here at Jenny & Andy, we are proud to be Canadian! Even our organic cotton is sourced from a local facility. We went behind the scenes to learn more from our supplier about how the fabric is made.

Made Locally

Our beloved supplier started his business back in 2003. From day one, his operations have been based in the GTA.

When we asked the owner what his favourite thing about working in textiles is, his simple answer was keeping his customers happy – something that we can relate to as well!

The facility houses 24 circular knitting machines, and produces around 1,700-
2,000 kg of fabric each day. Let's say the width of the fabric is 44 inches, that's almost 5 km of fabric!

So how do these knitting machines work?

First, the many yarn cones supply yarn to the machine. The yarn then goes through a feeder that maintains optimal yarn tension and minimizes knots. From the feeder, the yarn enters the needles which form the knitting loops.

After the yarn is knit, the knitted fabric is passed over an elliptical spreader mechanism that evenly distributes the take-up tension.

  

Our Priority

It's important to us that the cotton we use for our products be 100% organic because, as parents, our number one priority is our children's safety/wellbeing. Organic cotton is much better and healthier for children's sensitive skin as well as young children who often put everything they play with into their mouths!
