Merino wool is one of the most popular wools in the world and, without a doubt, its properties distinguish it as the star fiber every fall and winter. It comes from merino sheep, which is a 100% natural, biodegradable, and recyclable fiber. As well as its finesse, it is soft to the touch and hypoallergenic, that is, non-irritating! Merino wool does not need washing as often because its natural composition repels dirt, does not absorb odors, and thus prevents bacterial and microbial growth. Knit with 100% Merino wool to enjoy these and many other benefits!
