The term merino is widely used in the textile industries, but it cannot be taken to mean the fabric in question is actually % merino wool from a Merino strain bred specifically for its wool.

Time for a little science: Breathability is the ability of a fabric or fiber to transport moisture in the vapor state from an area of higher humidity to an area of lower humidity. Marriner Yarns provides high quality yarn, knitting wool and knitting supplies such as our double knit wool. Marriner Yarns is Britain's oldest and, arguably, best loved knitting yarn.
