Woolia - New sustainable merino yarn for needle size 4-6mm
This yarn is made of a very special wool, wool from an old original Italian sheep breed, Merino Gentile Puglia.
Sheep & lambs mainly graze between fruit and olive trees on organic plantations and on extensive areas.
Woolia is spun from the wool from lambs and sheep of the original Italian merino breed.
This breed lived and now lives in a smaller local area around Puglia, in Italy. Puglia is the sheep's original habitat and therefore the sheep stay naturally healthy much easier. That form of sheep farming and their grazing is the most sustainable form of wool production. It is environmentally friendly and provides the best living conditions for the sheep and the sheep breeders.
The farmers do sort the wool by themselves and sell the wool directly to our spinning mill. In this way, the farmer gets a better price for the wool and we know the product down to the individual small flocks of sheep.
Woolia is suitably soft and completely free of peeling. You also have arounf 30% more meters than in other yarn with same thickness.
This means that a sweater become light weight, even with have cabels or Fair Isle knitting.
The first time you feel the wool, you will probably find it a little dry, that is a characteristic of this merino. It is also the distinctive feature that gives the yarn a great lightness and the characteristic that makes Woolia-knits keep its shape regardless of needle size. Another feature is that Woolia does not actually scratch but maintains a very beautiful surface.
