Yarn Details

Our jumbo yarn is 100% handmade. It is hand-spun from 100% extra fine merino wool 18,5 microns from Italy. It is the best and premium merino quality in a market known for its extra softness and silkiness. It is a single ply, popular roving type yarn with a slight twist. Merino yarn goes through all necessary stages from fiber preparation to a spinning on a spinning wheel and washing to make lightly felted. This helps to fix the form of the yarn and get smooth textured surface with a unique look and soft feel. It allows knitwear to be more practical, prevents pilling and shedding. It is easier to knit with lightly felted yarn than with unfelted wool.

  • Specialized dry cleaning once a season is recommended for best results when cleaning your sweater.
  • If you prefer to wash it at home, tender hand washing in cool water without agitation is also an option. However, please be cautious as the sweater may be heavy when wet due to its 2 kg weight, making hand washing more challenging.
  • You may also use a washing machine on a delicate or wool cycle with cold water and without agitation, but please note that this method may cause the yarn to felt slightly, resulting in a thinner and firmer texture. Some softness may be lost in the process. Air dry the sweater after washing.
