Knitting for Olive is a yarn producer from Denmark. With a magical color range, high quality and clear goals for animal and human welfare, they have taken the yarn world by storm.

Heavy Merino is a yarn that consists of 100% merino wool. The yarn has a beautiful, natural texture, soft and wonderful to knit with. However, the merino wool used in this yarn is not the same merino wool used in Knitting for Olive - Merino, but it is a little rougher.

The wool comes from sheep in New Zealand, where muesling does not occur. The wool can be traced back to the farm it comes from. Merino wool has several good properties, among other things, the wool is temperature regulating, which means that the wool keeps body heat in cold weather and helps the body get rid of excess heat. At the same time, wool, just like silk, can transport moisture away and wool can absorb 30% of its weight without feeling wet. Wool is also dirt-repellent and does not need to be washed often.

The yarn is produced in Italy at a spinning mill and is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified.
