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 vest.
  • If you prefer to wash it at home, tender hand washing in cool water without agitation is also an option.
  • 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 vest after washing.
