Merino wool is very soft with a closely spaced crimp.  You can spin a
fine woollen yarn using the long draw or a worsted yarn using a short
draw. Merino is ideal for super fine knitting, crochet and lacework.

Ashford Merino sliver is a 100% New Zealand product with wool from
pasture-fed sheep from our high country sheep stations. We know many of
the farmers – some of whom have farmed the land for generations. They
take great pride in the quality of their wool and the high standard of
animal husbandry. The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed.

After the sheep are shorn, on the farm, the wool is carefully skirted
and checked. Only wool that is sound, clean with good fibre length,
bulk and colour is selected. It is sent to a boutique New Zealand mill
to be dyed, carded and combed.

It is scoured (washed)  using an
environmentally-friendly, biodegradable detergent  . The wool is then
dried and dyed. The dyes comply with the strict EU regulations and
garments made from the sliver can be certified under the Oeko-Tex
Standard 100. This standard is the most widely known standard for
certification of ecologically-safe clothing.
