non-superwash wool icon of sheep, worsted weight yarn icon of yarn ball, recommended needle size 5-7 icon of knitting needlesMerino/Rambouillet sheep are commonly found in the Western U.S. for their adaptability to semi-arid range conditions. They are large, rugged, gregarious animals known for their high-quality, dense, fine fleece.

Particular wool characteristics feature a bounce and elasticity without compromising softness. The matte surface beautifully exhibits natural dyes. And because it's non-superwash there's a high fiber memory retention. The fibers rub against each other and attach ever so slightly in what is known as a fulling effect. This makes it an excellent insulator.
