So silky-soft is this yarn that you will be racking your brains thinking about all the good things you could do with it. Cotton Merino from Knitting for Olive is like the name suggests: a blend of 70% cotton and 30% merino wool. It is spun to a fine, fingering weight gauge that will knit or crochet into dreamy, lightweight garments and accessories like shawls and scarves. Weavers will enjoy it for warp and weft!
Wool adds the benefits of elasticity to this mostly cotton yarn. It is a good bet for year round wearing - winter, spring, summer, and fall!
Knitting for Olive's merino wool comes from non-mulesed sheep and is spun in a mill that follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals. The yarn is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified
