Merino Wool Cotton is a combination of extra fine merino and cotton fibers. We have chosen not to card the merino wool and the acrylic blend together, which highlights each of the fibers properties in a better way, while at the same time allows to achieve more vibrant colors and textures. And as in all our merino yarns, the merino wool originates from free-range animals in Australia.
Merino wool fiber
Made from many thin strands spun together, which give the yarn roundness and elasticity, it is especially suitable for cable, structure and moss patterns. This special construction makes it extra important to treat the garment right: make sure that you knit with the correct tension and rather use a tight tension than loose. Don’t wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.
Very pleasant to work with, Origin Merino Acrylic provides comfortable garments with clear and regular stitches. The wool is superwash treated and very gentle on the skin, which makes it suitable for baby and children clothing.
Wool cotton is a blend of 70% merino and 30% cotton. It has the feel and subtle sheen of a cotton yarn, but with the stretch and durability of wool. It is also machine washable, so it is practical as well as beautiful.
