Merino Sheep

100% Merino wool from the breed that provides the very best fleece

Merino wool is known for its softness, elasticity and resilience, making it ideal for spinning into knitting yarn. Being as fine as it is, it’s the yarn most people are able to wear next to their skin, and the structure means it’s excellent at wicking moisture away from the skin, and helping to regulate body temperature. On top of that, wool is a renewable fibre.

Our signature twisted plies make up a hefty yarn with excellent stitch definition

At just 2.5sts to 2.5cm/1”, this is one of the most versatile chunky yarns you’ll find anywhere. It’s quick to knit (a hat takes just a few hours) making it perfect for new knitters who need the confidence building of finishing something as well as busy knitters who don’t have a lot of time on their hands. Doubled, it’s great for super-bulky jackets and cosy blankets.
