About Merino Wool
Originally bred in Spain as early as the 16th century, but now raised worldwide (Vermont and Australia in particular), Merino sheep are prized for the quality and desirability of the fleece they produce, which is considered to be among the softest and finest wool of any breed of sheep.
One of the distinctive properties of Merino wool is the size of its fibers, which are smaller relative to most other types of wool. Thus, it boasts a superior warmth-to-weight ratio.
And because it is so finely crimped and exceptionally soft, Merino wool is not only very comfortable to wear, but also does an excellent job of regulating body temperature without overheating the wearer. For this reason, it is an ideal choice for cold-weather outdoor wear, like the scarf shown here.
