55% Merino wool and 45% Pima cotton
Duo is a very comfortable year-round yarn. A great alternative for people who find wool itchy. The wool makes the yarn lighter and more elastic and insulates better than pure cotton. Cotton is not an itchy fiber. The blend of merino wool and cotton makes this a light and soft yarn that insulates well. A great alternative for people who find pure wool itchy.
Our supplier has guaranteed that the wool we buy does not come from sheep that have been subjected to mulesing.
For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Due to the unique absorbency of the merino wool, it is important to centrifuge hand-knitted garments well before drying them on a flat surface, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
