MERINO WOOL

The wool from the merino sheep is a statement of luxury. It is soft and supple with year-round comfort. Superfine merino yarn is one of the finest and softest of all and is often used for blending with prestigious fibers such as silk, cashmere, and alpaca. The merino was originally indigenous to Asia Minor, then introduced into Spain via North Africa by the Romans. An important characteristic of merino wool is the tightness and spring of its crimp (a natural wave that allows air to be trapped within the structure, giving wool its natural insulating quality), as well as the length of its staple, which varies from 6 to 10 cm in length

    COLOUR NUMBER EXPLANATION

    900-colors are Stonewashed Colors, created using a dyeing process that adds depth and interest;
    H-colours are Highlights Colors, hand-dyed in a special blended way and each colourway includes several colours. Highlights are ideal for cable and lacework, as well as all Stockinette designs since they do not interfere with patterning;
    200/2000/300-colours are Solids/Tonals Colors, solids are single colours, while tonals contain dark, medium, and light tones of colour. Tonals are great for subtly adding depth and interest to your work;

While these colourways do not stripe, certain techniques, such as modular knitting, can create wonderful striping effect;
    600-colours are Speckles Colors;
    CC-colours are Cosmic Colors with speckles.
