Merino wool is one of the finest and most exclusive fibres available with a unique shine and softness. Its high elasticity allows free body movement and is resistant to wrinkling and sagging. Due to the fineness of the fibre, it does not cause any itching when worn directly on the skin making it the perfect choice for even the most sensitive skin.
Merino wool is highly breathable and has excellent thermoregulating properties. In addition, it absorbs up to a third of its dry weight in moisture without feeling damp. The result: Merino warms in winter and cools in summer. The lanolin residues that are found in the yarn safeguard against odour-causing bacteria.
Pascuali merino fibres come from Argentina and are GOTS-certified. The certification focuses on animal welfare and guarantees that the working environment is safe, workers receive fair pay, there is no child labour or excessive working hours. This is done through regular inspections of the entire supply chain; from the farms to the washing, spinning and dyeing processes to bring you a yarn that is 100 % organic.
Using a biotechnical process called Lanazym, the wool is treated with enzymes, which significantly reduces its tendency to felt and pill. At the same time, all the natural properties of the fibre are retained. Thanks to its internal spring-like structure, merino wool is a naturally resilient and stretchy fibre. Its inherent protective outer layer will prevent stains from being absorbed, and its anti-bacterial properties will destroy odours. Because of its self- cleaning properties, airing your merino garment out after wearing it will usually do the trick. However, when needed, merino wool can be washed in the washing machine using a wool cycle and cold water. It won ́t shrink and it won ́t wrinkle either!
With 31 colours, the possibilities are endless! What´s not to love of a luxury, soft yarn that allows you to create stylish handmade garments in very little time? So, choose your favourite colours and let the fun begin!
