Cupboards are a paradise for any crafter. There are so many colors, textures, variety… you can get really lost with so many options! I don’t know about you, but I have made bad choices when buying wool for new projects. The result is a box full of yarns that I don’t know what to do with. So I decided to research more about each type of wool to be more confident in my next decisions. In fact, the term wool refers only to animal fibers, with the exception of silk. But here in Brazil, it is common to use this word for various types of yarn, including those of synthetic origin. Honestly, I think it doesn’t matter. The important thing is to know the yarns to know which one to choose when starting a new project. Yarns are made from fibers, which can be of animal, vegetable, or synthetic origin. Each type of fiber has particular characteristics: some are longer, others shorter; some are thinner, others thicker, smoother or wavier… and so on. And, of course, these particularities make each one more suitable for a particular type of work.
In this post, we will tell you a little about natural animal fibers. We hope this will help you in your next purchases!
Merino: Merino is a breed of sheep that has a high quality wool, and which has become more famous in Brazil recently, with the fever for maxi knitting blankets. Although this breed originated in the Iberian Peninsula, Australia and New Zealand are currently the largest producers of merino wool. This type of wool has many qualities: it is soft, resistant, durable, does not usually cause allergic reactions, accepts dyeing well, and retains its shape after being blotted. In addition, it is not prickly or odorless. Therefore, it can be used in all kinds of garments, such as blouses, socks, gloves, caps, etc. However, its softness can facilitate the creation of pilling, which are those little balls that appear on the wool after use, especially in areas that suffer more friction, such as armpits and wrists. In addition to merino, other breeds of sheep have wool with specific characteristics. The breed from Iceland, for example, is known for its rustic wool (“lópi”), which is rougher and more resistant. Another famous breed is from the Shetland Islands in northern Scotland.
