Merino wool – is “the sheep’s cashmere”
Merino wool comes from a special bread of sheep and is obtained through combing out process.
The quality of this wool is amazing.
The fibers are thin and soft with a silky surface but very tight and strong.
Where cashmere yarn fibers are easy to tear and deform, merino wool will stand the time, will not pill or scuff.
It will survive the washing and chemical cleaning.
