Merino Wool fabrics
The merino wool is made of merino sheep wool that is of best on the market. Our wool yarn comes mulesing free mainly from Argentina and most of our wool has not been Superwash treated. There are some old merino wools left in storage with no mulesing free certificate, so if you want to be absolutely sure of the origin of your choice of wool or the Superwash status, please contact us.
The wool fiber is long and curly which keeps its natural softness during processing. Therefore it is very suitable for sensitive and atopic skin. Merino wool is the softest wool quality: it lets air through and does not cause perspiration, it is extremely soft and warm on the skin. Wool absorbs 30-40% moisture of its weight without feeling damp. Merino wool contains natural wool grease called lanoline.
