There are many characteristics of the Merino fiber that make it one of our best and most exclusive wools. The best thing about this wool is that it is extremely smooth and soft – making it feel like a second skin.
The lightness of the fabric results in a product that has a high fiber density, causing small pockets of air that help to maintain your ideal body temperature. This fabric will not cause itching when it comes into contact with your skin; and it is highly flexible and durable
It is the perfect choice for blankets, baby clothes, and for your Winter and fall collections. The best part of all is that it is Superwash, so it can be used in your washing machine, but be sure to put the wash cycle on “delicate” and when possible, use a pH neutral or other gentle soap. We recommend to laying your wool flat to dry, as you would with other woolen products, to prevent any loss of shape.
