Knitting for Olive - Merino

Regular price $11.25

Knitting for Olive's Merino comes from sheep bred in Patagonia, where mulesing is not practiced.  The wool can be traced directly back to the farm it comes from.  "In this way, we know exactly which farm, farmers and sheep made our wool."

Merino wool has many excellent properties.  It is temperature-regulating.  That is, the wool keeps our bodies warm in cold weather and releases heat in warm weather, keeping our skin cool.  At the same time, wool, like silk, can carry moisture away from the skin, and can absorb 30% of its weight without feeling wet.

The yarn is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certified
