Merino Wool

Merino wool is a natural fiber grown by Merino sheep. What is Merino wool made of? Proteins composed of amino acids and natural compounds. Merino wool is a natural, renewable fiber—meaning one sheep can grow four to five pounds of wool per year. Plus, this fiber has evolved over the years to keep sheep comfortable in harsh environments. These happy animals hang out in temperatures that range from 5 degrees to 95 degrees—no problem. It’s a pretty amazing fiber.

Wool of the Merino sheep, prized for its extremely soft, insulating, and moisture-wicking qualities. It’s thinner and softer than regular wool—making it easy to wear next to skin. And when you wear wool next to skin, a lot of benefits come with it. It’s temperature regulating, odor resistant, mothproof, and flame retardant.

Though Merino wool can be machine washable (depending on the brand), handwashing is always the best and safest method. Dry-cleaning solvents and enzyme-containing detergents will degrade the yarn of items like Merino sweaters.

We suggest you follow the care instructions specific to the yarn you are using and when in doubt hand wash in tepid water using a mild soap. Do not agitate or twist. Lay garment flat on a towel and roll it up like a sleeping bag.  You can let that sit from 15 minutes to the following day to ensure the towel wicks out as much moisture as possible.  Then unroll, place on a clean, dry towel, shape and dry flat.
