Merino Baby Sport is a wonderfully smooth and soft natural product made of merino wool, which is light yet warm. Merino wool provides warmth without being hot and it has moisture wicking properties that keep garments dry to the touch.
This beautiful natural wool is easy to work with and is suitable for all types of patterns: textured patterns like the cable pattern, Ajour, or lace. It is a very nice yarn with which you can knit cardigans, sweaters, capes, shawls, hats, scarves, leg warmers. It is also very suitable for baby clothing. Because merino wool has a soft fleece, it can be worn directly on the skin, and it does not pill. You can knit a pair of hand warmers very quickly and make a nice gift for a loved one.
