Hand Dyed Untreated Extrafine (19.5 micron) Merino Wool Yarns
Pure Merino luxury fine (19.5 micron) merino fibre is used in all of our merino yarns. This is a luxury fibre with an exceptionally soft handle and is for those very special knits.
The ethical sourcing of these fibres is very important to us. Sourced from Australian merino farms where high standards of animal welfare are required and animal husbandry practices ensure the basic needs of the sheep to keep them healthy and happy are met. All of the Australian merino fibre used is from sheep that have not been mulesed.
The wool fibre complies with the Australian wool industry administered National Wool Declaration Scheme under which growers declare that the wool is from sheep that have not been mulesed. This declaration is subject to independent verification checks and farm inspections.
Items made from these yarns should be washed in cool or room temperature water with minimal agitation (it is agitation and heat that causes wool to felt).
