CottonWool consists of extra fine merino lambswool and extra fine cotton; completely carded and spun together. Lasts very well in the wash at 20 - 25 °C and up to max. 30 °C. Wash for maximum 5 - 10 minutes and do not soak. Gauge is 26-30 sts = 10 cm in stockinette stitch on needle 3 - 3½ mm.

This is the most intelligent yarn I have ever come across. It is very soft and combines the insulating and moisture absorbing properties of the wool with the quickly drying cotton that transports moisture away from the skin. The yarn is perfect for all-weather shirts and sweaters for both men and women, but especiallychildren. Small children's bodies are not as good at regulating body temperature through their skin and therefore, an insulating - but never hot nor cold - yarn is perfect. A shirt in CottonWool 3 can be worn all year round - both indoors and outdoors.

The colour chart comes with both fashion colours and dusty pastels - more than 25 beautiful colours which are easy to match in stripes and patterns.

Blend: 50% extra fine merino wool, 50% extra fine cotton. The cotton is orgranic and GOTS certified.

CottonWool 3 has been treated against shrinking and felting. This means that you can wash your work at up to 30°C. The antishrinkage treatment is not the same as superwash  but in stead a treatment using nothing but regular table salt. 

Know your washing machine! All washing machines wash in yheir own way, even when the cycles have identical names. We recommend washing a small sample when uncertain of, for example, the wool cycle on your machine.
