Merino knitting yarn

Merino yarn can have different designations based on the quality of its fibres. The finer the fibres, the softer the yarn, with superfine merino being the best of sheep wool. As such, our Diam yarn is made using only the finest fibres (19,5 microns, 1 micron = 1 thousandth of milimeter) with a softness reminiscent of alpaca and mohair. Some of our yarns have received special certifications that increases their quality, such as our mulesing-free Diam yarn or our Woolmark-certified Meridou yarn.
Merino was very recently added to our collection. Originally, our sweaters were knitted using a rougher sheep yarn, such as the Shetland sweaters. These knitting yarns were up to three times thicker, which could cause a rather displeasing sensation in contact with the skin.
The biggest merino farms can be found in Australia, New Zaland, and South Africa. In France, a particularly fine merino yarn is produced in the city of Arles. Depending on the age of the animal, its environment, and the farming conditions, a sheep can yield up to 9 kg of wool per year.

Merino sweaters

You can’t go wrong with knitting a merino yarn sweater. Thanks to its well-defined stitches, this warm and soft yarn make for irreproachable knitted garments for the whole family: women’s, men’s, or children’s jumpers, and layette. Merino yarn is perfect to knit fantasy stitches, such as cross stitches, cables, Irish knitted motifs, or Jacquard. Enjoy the many colours available and knit one of our merino jumper designs.
