Wild Web Sweater is knitted from silk and mohair yarn which is very fuzzy. Changing the needles size between 5 and 8 during knitting created an organic irregular texture defined by loose stitches. The result looks almost dreamy like the softest spider web. It is ultralight and incredibly soft but still warm. Perfect for sunny spring days or chilli summer evenings.
Wool is comfortable to wear in both warm and cool climates. This is because wool is an absorbent fiber. When the air is cool and damp, wool absorbs moisture and keeps a layer of dry insulating air next to the skin. When it is warm, that same absorbtion capacity takes up perspiration and keeps insulating dry air next to the skin, making the body's natural cooling system work better.
Merino wool is the material shorn from Merino sheep. These sheep are sought after for their coats, which are said to produce the finest, softest wool available. This wool is often used for athletic garments, as it breathes and wicks better than most synthetic fabrics.
Merinos are extremely adaptable to variable temperatures, so they can be found in many areas of the world. Even though Australia is the leading producer of Merino wool, New Zealand produces the highest quality of this soft wool, which is softer and more finely crimped than other wools.
