Extra fine (19.5 micron) merino is used for these yarns. It feels soft and gentle against the skin but is also strong and durable for good wearing properties. Its natural elasticity allows garments to stretch then return to their original shape. Merino is highly breathable, wicking away moisture from the body, helping you stay warm in cool weather and cool in warm weather. Naturally antimicrobial. These yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel.
None of our types have been sourced from farms that employ the Mulesing system.
This worsted weight Superwash Merino is the perfect staple fiber for your dye business. Great for garments and accessories, with a squishy hand and round ply your customers will love. This superwash wool takes color brilliantly.
