Why we love Woolfolk
By marrying innovative technology with noble fibers, Woolfolk is striving to create an incomparable composition of fiber with a refined, modern palette for the discerning knitter. Each shade is inspired by their home in the lush Pacific Northwest (US) and carefully chosen for its timeless versatility, from subtle gradients to smart accents.
Woolfolk yarns combine the highest quality wool with ethical, sustainable practices. The fiber they use, Ovis 21 Ultimate Merino®, doesn’t happen by chance, but by the innovative efforts of farmers to produce the very best wool fiber while being land stewards of the Patagonian Grasslands. Woolfolk brings this exquisitely soft and lustrous fiber in handknitting yarns that preserves the unique attributes of this luxurious wool.
The presence of coarse fibers in wool create “prickle” — the main obstacle to wearing and working with wool. Most wool products have a high percentage of over 30 microns - the diameter measure of a strand of fiber. Ultimate Merino® has a micron count of 17.5, and combines the hand of cashmere with the wear of merino. The long cylindrical fibers, with a surface that is smoother due to elongated, flat scales, reflect light and absorb dye better than elliptical fibers, resulting in lustrous yarns with deep and lasting hues.
