Certified responsibly sourced merino wool roving produced from sheep in the US who are ethically and sustainably raised. Great for knitting, felting, spinning, and other crafts. The perfect option for arm knitting or hand knitting chunky wool blankets and accessories. This wool is 23 micron and incredibly soft to the touch. Very warm but also breathable when used for blankets or garments. Naturally resistant to mold, bacteria, and mildew. Renewable and eco friendly - lasts a lifetime, but will biodegrade fully in 1-2 years under ideal conditions. Free from synthetic dyes, chemicals, and irritants. This listing is for 12 lbs of wool. Please see my other listings for smaller or larger quantities. For use in knitting chunky blankets: You will need approximately 2 lbs of wool for a baby blanket, 6-8 lbs for a throw, and 11-12 lbs for a large queen sized comforter.
