Mominoki's German Merino wool is light and airy. The knitted clothes are very warm and have a natural look. It’s well suited for every project, especially cosy warm pullovers and winter clothes.

The natural merino wool originates from the alpine uplands in the south of Germany. It’s spun in a small spinning mill owned by a family in the 3rd generation. They get the wool from the local shepherds in the surroundings, so from the breeding of the sheep to the dyeing this yarn is completely made in Germany.

The family at the spinning mill attaches great importance to sustainability, so for example, they don’t waste any wool during the process, all unusable or dirty wool is pressed into pellets and can be used as a biological fertilizer. Also, all buildings and water are heated by wood pellets.

The sheep roam the meadows of the alpine uplands and are only in the shelter if there's too much snow or after shearing. They change the meadows several times a day. It’s usual that the farmers let them graze on their lands because they fertilize the ground and keep the grass short.
