Knitting for Olive:
Our merino wool comes from sheep bred in Patagonia, where mulesing is not practiced. The wool can be traced directly back to the farm it comes from. In this way, we know exactly which farm, farmers, and sheep made our wool.
The yarn is produced in Italy. Our spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.
The yarn is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified.
Merino wool has many excellent properties. It is temperature-regulating. That is, the wool keeps our bodies warm in cold weather, and releases heat in warm weather, keeping our skin cool. At the same time, wool, like silk, can carry moisture away from the skin, and can absorb 30% of its weight without feeling wet.
Wool is also dirt-repellent and requires minimal care.
Note! Since computer monitors display colors differently, we cannot guarantee that the color of the yarn on your computer monitor accurately captures the true colors of the product.
