Knitting for Olive No Waste Wool
Knitting for Olive's No Waste Wool is a sustainable wool yarn made of 50% recycled wool and 50% of their extrafine Merino, traceable and non-mulesed.
The yarn is very soft and has a beautiful and woolen texture.
The recycled wool is a waste product from the production of other wool yarns. They collect the excess wool fibers, blend it with our merino wool and spin the wool blend into a new yarn. This way they use the wool fibers that would otherwise be wasted, and reduce waste in yarn productions.
The 50% merino wool adds extra strength to the recycled wool.
The yarn is produced in Italy. Their spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.
