Woolia - New sustainable merino yarn for needle size 4-6mm

This yarn is made of a very special wool, wool from an old original Italian sheep breed, Merino Gentile Puglia.

Woolia is suitably soft and completely free of pilling. You also have around 30% more meters than in other yarn with same thickness. 
This means that a sweater become lightweight, even if it has cables or colourwork knitting.
The first time you feel the wool, you will probably find it a little dry - that is a characteristic of this merino. It is also the distinctive feature that gives the yarn a great lightness and the characteristic that makes Woolia knits keep their shape regardless of needle size. Another feature is that Woolia is not scratchy but maintains a very beautiful surface.
