Our merino wool is ultra-fine. In industry this usually refers to a fibre that measures less than 19.5 microns (μ)
diameter. This measurement is referred as a ‘micron count’. A micron (or micrometre) is one millionth of a meter (0.000001).
Our Novomerino yarn uses extra special fibres from sheep selectively bred in Australia, to produce possibily the finest wool, with an average micron count of 15μ. Much below the finesse used to claim ‘ultrafine’. This is the first time a fibre of this length and quality has been used for a hand knit yarn, and it is a pleasure to work with, and to wear.
To give you a better picture of how fine this is, we prepared the below diagram.
This is the first time a fibre of this length and quality has been used for a hand knit yarn, and it is a pleasure to work with, and to wear.
Our impeccable care and attention is not just limited to the well being of our livestock. Our commitment to the highest industry standards carry on throughout the production process. We spin and dye all our fleece and oversee where every ball of wool is wound and packaged.
We are proud to be the only company in the world to use merino wool of this superior quality for our hand knit yarns.
