'Woolfolk is the vision of the ecologically minded conservationist; the hard-working, adventurous outdoorswoman; the modern architect; and the inheritor of her ancestors’ traditions. Together, the pieces create the finished work that is Woolfolk Yarn.'~Meghan Babin, Interweave
Woolfolk yarns combine the highest quality wool with ethical, sustainable practices. The fiber used, Ultimate Merino®, is the result of the innovative efforts of farmers to produce the very best wool fiber while being land stewards of the Patagonian Grasslands. Woolfolk brings this exquisitely soft and lustrous fiber in handknitting yarns that preserves the unique attributes of this luxurious wool. Head over to Ovis 21 for more information on the stewardship of the Patagonian Grasslands.
Ultimate Merino® Structure
The presence of coarse fibers in wool create “prickle” — the main obstacle to wearing and working with wool. Most wool products have a high percentage of over 30 microns - the diameter measure of a strand of fiber. Ultimate Merino® has a micron count of 17.5, and combines the hand of cashmere with the wear of merino. The long cylindrical fibers, with a surface that is smoother due to elongated, flat scales, reflect light and absorb dye better than elliptical fibers, resulting in lustrous yarns with deep and lasting hues.
