What is merino wool?
It doesn't smell, it doesn't scratch, it cools when it's warm and warms when it's cold - merino wool is perfect as a person's second "skin". It belongs to the fine wool class and has the highest degree of fineness of all sheep wool types.

The Merino sheep belongs to the class of fine wool sheep and owes its name to the North African Berber dynasty of the Merinids. Here, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Fez Mountains, the fluffy animals, which can grow to around 1.40 metres tall and weigh up to 100 kilograms, found the ideal climatic conditions. In the Middle Ages, the sheep came to Spain via Tunisia. Until the 18th century, Merino sheep could only be bred in Spain - a kind of monopoly was created and the wool was called "Spanish wool". Exporting the sheep was forbidden - on pain of death! - forbidden. Since the fall of the monopoly, Merino sheep have been bred all over the world. And the biggest supplier of merino wool is now - Australia.

Each sheep can supply between two and three kilogrammes of wool per year - in exceptional cases even up to ten kilogrammes are possible. Merino wool is strongly curled, soft, light and very elastic. Its colour varies between white and beige, but there are also natural brown and mottled brown shades.

Merino wool is characterised by a variety of exclusive properties. Thanks to the fineness of its fibres, it is very pleasant to wear on the skin. This is because the thin merino wool fibres curl in contrast to the thicker wool fibres and therefore scratch much less.
