Kremke Soul Wool - The Merry Merino 140 GOTS certified wool (DK Weight)
The Merry Merino by Kremke Soul Wool is a very special organic double knit (DK) weight merino wool yarn that is machine washable at 30-degrees. Ideal for any project where you want the softness and warmth of merino wool, The Merry Merino is particularly popular for baby knits.
The merino sheep breed is known for its soft fleece making the wool sought after for luxurious, soft, wearable knits. Most people will find this wool beautifully soft and comfortable next to the skin.
Kremke Soul Wool are known for yarns that look to reduce the yarn industry's impact on the environment so, although this wool is treated to be machine washable, it uses an alternative to traditional superwash techniques. Superwash yarns are considered less environmentally friendly due to the chemicals and/or plastic used in the treatment. Merry Merino 140 is treated with an enzyme process meaning that only air and electricity are used to treat the wool. This process also uses less energy than the usual superwash treatments.
Because no chemicals or plastic are used in the process, the yarn can be awarded GOTS certification. GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
This yarn would be perfect for baby knits due to its softness and the fact that it is machine washable at 30-degrees. The lack of harsh chemicals or plastic used in the manufacturing process make it an even more attractive option for a really special baby garment or accessory. The yarn has good yardage for a DK meaning the balls go that little bit further.
