Merino knitting wools comes from the Merino breed of sheep which are prized for their extra soft and warm fleeces.
The wool is very good at regulating body temperatures and provides warmth without overheating the wearer.It also draws moisture from the skin thus helping the wearer to stay comfortable whether it be in warm or cold conditions.
At the same time it is slightly water repellent, the effect of which is to prevent the wearer from any feeling of wetness and it's antibacterial qualities also result in reduced body odour.
Altogether merino knitting wools are a very superior wool and we are happy to offer 2 varieties for knitting here, plus merino tops for felting.
Both of the knitting yarns have been blended with other materials in order to improve their interest, shape stability and durability.
