ouR Merino is breathable, responsibly and ethically sourced
Our Merino wool provides excellent comfort and functionality, making it perfect for those who love long walks, winter hikes and camping under night skies. The wool’s natural fibers will keep you cozy in chilly weather while allowing your body to release heat in warmer temperatures. And don’t worry, our Merino wool comes from sheep where mulesing isn’t practised, so you can craft ethical, sustainable knitwear when using our yarn.
Meet Our ethical yarn
Our wool is RWS certified. RWS is short for Responsible Wool Standard and the certification ensures that both animals, farmers and the environment is treated respectfully. The list of requirements to RWS certified wool is long. In short terms the certification protects the Five Freedoms of animal welfare, which mean freedom from hunger and thirst, freedom from discomfort, freedom from pain, injury and disease, freedom to express normal behaviour and freedom from fear and distress.
At the same time RWS farms protect soil health, biodiversity and native species and the RWS certification protects social welfare, working conditions and health safety of farmers and workers.
