O-Wash Fingering

$25.50

O-Wash Organic Fingering is made with organic Merino wool and is a super soft, tonally dyed (alternate skeins) fingering weight Merino yarn. Great for garments worn close to the skin, including baby clothes and blankets (it's machine-washable!).

Unlike conventional superwashing processes where scales are burned off of the wool fiber with acid, O-Wash uses a GOTS certified organic compound to create washability. This compound holds the wool fibers in place during washing and drying, preventing them from interlocking during agitation, which is what causes shrinkage and felting.

O-Wool is a small company with the goal of providing knitters and crafters with a yarn that is environmentally responsible, affordable, and made locally in our very own Philadelphia and in the USA. O'Wool skeins are wound in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia and some yarns are dyed down the street in the Germantown neighborhood. O'Wool sources it's non-mulesed merino wool from certified organic farms in South America and Australia.
