Here is an excerpt from naturally Yarns website regarding the definition of organic yarn.
"Organic Yarn Definition
To be certified Organic the property must have a conversion period of at least three years. Stringent audits are taken every six months during the conversion period when making the transition from conventional farming to Organic. During this time the land must not have any non-organic sprays and soil samples must be taken annually. Livestock and sheep cannot be drenched or dipped without special permission from the Organic Control body and any form of non-organic antibiotics or animal treatment will eliminate that animal from continuing its organic status. Stock must be treated humanly and farmed in accordance with good husbandry manner. All fertilisers must be Organically certified and strict documentation must be displayed at regular Audits. Overall traceability and organic compliance is very strict and must also comply with MPI regulations."
