WHAT IS MERINO YARN?

Merino wool comes from Merino sheep which originated in Spain in the 15th century but is now mainly breed in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.  The sheep are breed solely for their wool, merino fibres are much finer and softer than traditional wool especially that found from UK sheep. Its' soft qualities make it ideal for baby garments and cardigans, sweaters and accessories.
