Since discontinuing all our traditional "superwash" wool because of its negative impact on the environment, we have been searching for an eco-friendly alternative, and we are now happy to add Rosy Green Wool's Big Merino Hug to our yarn family. Big Merino Hug is a super soft GOTS-certified washable merino yarn. The wool comes from a Patagonian organic farming cooperative and is spun and dyed for Rosy Green Wool by small businesses in Portugal and England. Big Merino Hug is perfect for all next-to-skin soft projects requiring a machine-washable worsted weight yarn. You can read more about the care taken in all stages of production of this special yarn here.
