Details

This yarn consists of a core of thin merino threads that surround the loose merino wool. This provides both softness and lightness as well as a very special structure. Please note that the Double Soft Merino is not a spun yarn. This means that the loose wool pills more than a regular spun yarn. We recommend, when knitting with the Double Soft Merino, to include a companion thread, such as the Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair, which will hold loose wool and reduces pilling.

The yarn is mulesing-free and Oeko-Tex Standard 100% organic certified. Knitting for Olive's spinning industry follows ethical and environmentally-sound practices to create a yarn without harmful substances.
