Greener Wool Mergelland


Mergelland is an aran weight yarn (needle size 4 to 5 mm) spun entirely from the wool of Mergelland sheep. The Mergelland sheep is an old and rare breed, tall and hornless, with a spacious and light fleece. It’s a local yarn from Belgium: we source the fleece for this yarn from Natuurpunt‘s own Mergelland flock in Limburg.

Mergelland is sturdy and durable, perfect for interior design and outer wear. It’s a worsted yarn, which means the fibers have been combed to get them all in the same direction before spinning. That makes for a stronger and smoother yarn, because we think that if you do the effort to knit a garment it should last long!
