Dyed Merino

We like to match our great prices with great fibres and that's why all our Dyed Merino is of 70s grade, (21 micron). The higher the number the finer the wool, and we find that 70s gives the perfect balance between being soft against the skin while also being hard wearing enough to last a lifetime. When comparing prices it's always a good idea to check what grade wool you'll be getting, merino comes in many qualities.

Our merino is sourced as white wool from South America and dyed to our specification and shades. When we get it from the dyer we then give it an extra blending to ensure that it is in perfect condition for spinners and feltmakers. We think this extra processing give a superior finish to our wool.
South American wools are non mulesed

 

But what does the 70 actually mean?
