The Linie 4 STARWOOL by ONline is made of extra-fine merino wool (100 percent virgin wool). For those, who prefer merino wool over Icelandic wool, you can knit with Linie 4 everything that is knitted with Lettlopi yarn. The two types of wool have about the same yarn strength. Linie 4 STARWOOL is certified according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
Merino wool is essentially both, breathable and insulating. That means it has a cooling effect in summer and gives warmth in winter. In addition, the wool of the merino sheep is particularly soft and fine.
The fiber consists of 85 percent air, which makes it so breathable and delicate as it is. Another special characteristic of the fiber is that the wool does not itch. The merino sheep originates from North Africa and belongs to the so-called fine wool sheep.
We try to present the colors of the yarn as true to the original as possible. However, please note that the colors might look a little lighter or darker or slightly different depending on the resolution, display, etc. of the screen.
