When you knit Knitting for Olive's Heavy merino a, you will notice that it is high-quality 100% merino wool with a beautiful and natural texture. Although the yarn is soft, it is not quite as fine as the more refined merino yarn from the same manufacturer. Heavy merino offers an attractive soft color range and is particularly suitable for embroidery. The twist of the thread is also such that braids and various surface knits also stand out. You can get more warmth and softness by combining the yarn with mohair, for example K knitting for Olive's Soft Silk Mohair .

This yarn is also an excellent choice for children's knitwear, as it is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified, which guarantees its safety and quality. The wool, which comes from Patagonian sheep, is ethically produced without the mulesing method. You can trace the wool directly from the original farm, giving you transparency as to where it comes from. This way you know exactly which farm, farmers and sheep the wool has traveled through to get to you.

Merino wool has a wide range of good properties. Wool is temperature regulating. In other words, wool keeps the body warm in cold weather and provides warmth when the skin needs to be kept cool in hot weather. At the same time, wool, like silk, can transport moisture away from the skin, and wool can absorb 30% of its weight without feeling wet.

Wool is also dirt repellent and requires little care. The yarn is made in Italy. The spinning mill follows ethical and environmentally friendly procedures to create yarn without harmful substances.
