Alexander Serafimoff is a russian designer who creates knitted dresses illustrated with colourful landscapes and animals. He uses "%100 natural" yarn (sheep's and llama's wool as well as cotton).

"It definitely seems to me that nowadays the 100% organic yarn is not existing on sale. At present, if you see (at the label of yarn) an inscription "100%" you should realize that it's implying no more than 95%.
