Merino wool yarn

Find merino wool yarn at Önling

On this page you will find our selection of soft and delicate merino wool yarns. Wool is very popular in knitwear as it is a completely natural material which is both heat insulating and soft. Merino wool is a subgroup of wool yarn that comes from merino sheep, and is particularly popular for its softness. Merino wool can be used in many different knitting projects, either alone or in combination with other materials. The first time the soft merino wool was discovered was in the medieval society in Spain, and since then merino sheep have been bred in several places in the world - Australia in particular produces a lot of merino wool.

There are many benefits to merino wool. It does not need to be washed as often as other materials, as the wool has a self-cleansing property. When your woolen knitwear needs refreshing, you can just hang the sweater over the back of a chair or on a hanger in the fresh air for the night - then the wool will do the rest of the work. In addition, merino wool does not absorb sweat odor and it keeps you warm, even if it gets wet.

Merino wool can be used for many things

Merino wool is a soft and versatile material, that can be used in virtually all knitting and crochet projects. Merino wool and wool yarn have the amazing property that it keeps you warm. If you use wool yarn in your knitting, you will not freeze. Knit a sweater in merino wool yarn, and combine it with other beautiful materials to get exactly the favorite sweater you would like.
