WHY WE LOVE MERINO WOOL

Merino wool is a renewable resource with amazing benefits:

  • Merino wool is so lush and cozy, much finer and softer than typical wool

  • It adapts to your body temperature so you won't overheat

  • Odor Resistant

  • Hypoallergenic

  • Biodegradable: Merino wool will naturally decompose in soil when it is disposed

"My love for knitting started as a child; it was something special my grandmother taught me during one of our visits. I had since forgotten about knitting, finished university, setting out to change the world in the field of mental health. For those of you working in the mental health field, you know that the job can be emotionally difficult and stressful. Knitting became my personal mindfulness practice to unwind after hard days."
