Merino – this breed of sheep, whose wool differs from the usual wool of sheep in that it is not prickly, elasticity and elasticity. What are the features of 100% Merino yarn? Natural Merino wool is very soft, does not prick at all and has the properties of a thermal stabilizer. This wool is able to keep your body warm, even at fairly low temperatures. But, at the same time, Merino wool products will not float. It is also rumored that Merino wool has medicinal properties and due to the significant amount of animal wax in the wool – lanolin – Merino products have an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and resorbing effect.
What is Merino wool?
Australia is known for its very harsh winters and hot summers. Thanks to the adaptation of sheep to such difficult conditions of survival, the world got a wool with unique properties - Merino wool. Merino wool has a microscopic diameter - from one-third to one-tenth the thickness of a human hair. The smaller the diameter of the fiber, the softer and more pleasant to the body, and therefore more valuable. Merino wool is divided into:
Ultrafine Wool is the best wool fiber in the world. Extra Ultrafine is in the 16.0 micron range and finer. Ultrafine is in the micron range of 16.1-17.5. Breeders who concentrate on ultra-fine microns can produce fibers that are 13.5 microns in size and even slightly thinner than this. Ultra-fine Merino wool in the range of 12.5-17.5 is perfect for mixing with other exclusive fibers such as silk and cashmere to produce high-quality fabrics of the exclusive fashion market for both men and women.
Superfine Wool - the fiber diameter is 17.6-18.5 microns.
Fine Wool - the fiber diameter is 18.6-19.5 microns.
Fine-Medium Wool - the fiber diameter is 19.6-20.5 microns. The Merino sheep population, which gives this particular range of fiber thickness ,is the most common. Their wool is ideal for use in medium and heavy knitwear, has a feeling of softness, but still retains its strength and durability when used in the production of outerwear.
Medium Wool - fiber diameter 20.6-22.5 microns. It is used mainly for light suits, knitwear, and in the commercial sector. More wear-resistant.
Thick Wool (Strong Wool) - the fiber diameter is 22.6 microns or higher. Even more wear-resistant, it is mainly used for mixing with polyester and acrylic fibers for the production of inexpensive fabrics and knitted wool. It is also used in seat fabrics and interior upholstery in the automotive and aviation sectors. Fabrics with thick Merino wool are also used by designers as wall coverings for interior decoration.
What can we offer?
Tops or combed tape is the main raw material component for the production of worsted and fine — wool yarns.
The main raw material For the production of tops is Merino sheep wool (64-70 quality, fiber tone-up to 23 microns).
in the worsted spinning system, tops are produced with one or two combed carding, with different compositions: pure wool, synthetic or mixed with a different combination of natural and synthetic fibers.
The main indicators that characterize the tops:
- fiber fineness, micron;
- average fiber length, mm;
- weight of the tape, g/m;
- presence of dead hair and foreign fibers, PCs/m;
- quality of dyeing.
Under the order we make tops:
- with one or two combed carding;
- with physical and mechanical parameters required by the customer;
- different color.
We carry out orders from our own or tolling raw materials.
Tops (combed ribbon) is used:
- for the production of worsted and fine-woven yarns;
- for the manufacture of artificial furs;
- for the production of felt;
- for needlework (feliziani).

Showing making procedure is a good way to guarantee product quality
With your own hands practical and beautiful, you need a special yarn. Usually a twisted Merino thread is used. Combed ribbons made of wool fibers are considered a more affordable option. You can make a large-knit blanket or rug from a knitted cord.
