The Finest and Softest Merino Yarn
Merino wool is high-quality wool from a particular breed of sheep called the Merino sheep. This yarn is known for its very soft and fine structure and is often used in underwear or baby clothing. There are many different types of merino yarn that all work for knitting and crochet, and some also for felting. There are also many different types of wool yarn but merino is one of the finest and softest of them all. The tiny fibres contain a lot of air, which increases the yarns insulating ability even though it weighs very little. In addition, merino wool is very breathable compared to other types of wool, antibacterial and sweat-repellent.
Benefits of Using Merino Yarn
Compared to normal wool, merino wool is a yarn of a much higher quality. The yarn has an ultra-fine softness that gives it a very different texture than more traditional wool yarn, which is why many people love this yarn. One of the reasons why people in northern countries or Canada love this yarn is because it is especially a good yarn to use in cold climates. In cold snowy weather, this yarn will keep you warm and at the same time it is very comfortable and itch-free. Therefore, the yarn is often used in underwear. Another benefit of the merino yarn, is an odour-resistant material that prevents the user from smelling even when sweating. Because of this quality, many people use merino wool in the summer, when working out. It is often used in skiing, because of its amazing ability to absorb a lot of moisture and still keep you warm.
How to Wash Merino Wool
When you work with merino wool it is very important to follow the correct washing instructions, as merino wool is very sensitive. In most cases, it is recommended to wash merino wool by hand at 30 degrees. If you, however, prefer machine wash, you can wash it on a wool-wash setting or other similar fine-wash settings at 30 - 40 degrees. Additionally, is it extremely important not to use fabric softeners, when washing wool, because this can make the fibers so soft that they will slide out of shape and lose their natural elasticity. Instead of fabric softeners, you can use wool detergent, which are made especially for wool yarn.

What our customers say about Merino Wool
I love the feel of this merino wool. It is soft and doesn’t split as I crochet. I can’t wait for my grandson to wear his new sweater. Thank you!

I purchased the Baby Merino wool and found it to be lovely and soft and really nice to knit
This is a very soft and lucious Merino wool, with a nice big palette of colors to choose from. Yummy!
I used this to knit up a warm cowl for a wonderful woman who has moved to CT from southern CO for her first winter in 88 years. While I normally don’t like chain yarn, this was easy to work with, will be warm and looks great on the recipient! Had no problems with this yarn at all and loved working with it.
I started a small baby cardigan last night with 010. Oh my, what soft and beautiful yarn this is. I can see ordering more, soon, even thought I ordered 3 balls of 3 different colours.
Beautifully soft wool! And great value for Merino! I look forward to start my project! 👍🏻😀
