We have selected Merino wool for our knittings. The wool comes from the fleece of Merino sheep, imported from Spain to Australia.
Merino wool is a natural and noble material. It is appreciated for its qualities:
- It does not itch because it is three times finer than traditional wool;
- It is silky soft - therefore particularly suitable for children with sensitive skin especially at birth;
- It is very isolating and regulating temperature.
At lepetitmouton, we use merino wool from the Italian brand "Grignascoknits" which produces the yarn since 1894.
