Where are Merino Maxi and Merino Mini yarn and knitted products made?

Merino Maxi and Merino Mini yarns are hand made in Ukraine. The fibers are sourced from Italy where it was dyed and then hand spun into yarn at our workshop in Kiev, Ukraine. 

All knitted products are designed and made in Ukraine as well.

Can I wash garments made yarn Merino Mini and Merino Maxi? What's the best way to care for it?
  • Dry cleaning is the best. 
  • Gentle hand wash with cool water and without any agitation is possible for small items (hats, scarves, cowls). Lay flat to dry.
  • Machine washing is not recommended.

Note about washing:

Exposure to heat and agitation will cause wool fibers to felt more.  If you chose to wash your garment we recommend using cold water only, delicate/wool cycle, no agitation, air dry only. 

You might still lose some softness from washing, even in cold water (not considerable), but it will shed less. If you are not sure you can make a small swatch and wash it and see if you like the result before you wash the entire garment.

  • For garments such as jackets and scarves we recommend to always store them folded instead of hanging to prevent stretching. 
What about pilling and shedding?

Merino Maxi and Merino Mini yarns are made with 100% natural merino wool fiber which means some amount of shedding and pilling will naturally occur. The yarn is already lightly felted to prevent some shedding and be more practical. But still the garment may pill (which is natural and will occur with use, especially heavy use). In this case you can simply trim the pills with a pair of scissors or tear them off by hands. It will only take a few minutes and your garment will look like new.  Also washing (following the recommendations above) can reduce the pilling.
