What % of my product must be made from certified organic fibres?

What % of my product must be made from certified organic fibres?

To label a product as organic, it must contain at least 95% organic fibres.  The remainder may be non-organic fibre, including regenerated or synthetic fibres. Non-fibre based accessories are excluded from the calculation. To label a product as made with X% organic materials, it must contain at least 70% organic fibres and no more than 10% regenerated or synthetic fibres. Socks, leggings and sports wear may contain up to 25% regenerated or synthetic fibres. Again, non-fibre based accessories are excluded from the calculation.
