Lana Grossa Cool Wool is a premium quality non-felting pure Australian Merino wool. This yarn is in double knit weight, slightly lustrous and velvety, and is suitable for both hand and machine knitting of all-year-round outfits.

Known facts: Researchers have found that nine months is all it takes for merino garments to biodegrade. The New Zealand Merino Company commissions trials comparing the biodegradation behaviour of merino and synthetic fabrics. Whole garments and fabric samples, including an Icebreaker merino base layer, were buried in soil and excavated at various intervals to assess the rate of biodegradation. The results came out strongly in favour of merino fabrics, which lost around 36% of their mass after only two months burial in soil and up to 99% after nine months. In comparison, the polyester knit fabrics did not degrade at all during the course of the nine-month trial period. - source: cutandshow.com
