Did You know?

  •  Merino is a breed of sheep with fine woolen fleeces originating in Spain. It is thought that the breed originated from the Moors in the 12th century. It is well adapted to nomadic pastures and semi-arid climates and has become prominent in many countries, particularly Australia.

  • Merino sheep fleeces never stop growing and they need to be sheared at least once a year to prevent the sheep from overheating in the summer.

  • The breathability of merino wool is superior to cotton and other man-made fabrics.

  • A breed in Australia called the Poll Merino has no horns.

  • If you unravel wool from one Merino sheep, it can reach all the way from San Francisco to London.

  • Baah Yarn contains between 70% and 100% Merino wool depending on the collection.

  • Wool from approximately 7 sheep can wrap around the world, a distance of around 25,000 miles!

  • Merino wool varies in thickness and wool can be so fine, that some batches are blended with delicate fabrics like silk to create luxuriously soft garments.

  • Merino wool is very soft and does not irritate the skin because it has smaller fibres and scales, compared to regular wool.
