As a Merino Knitwear manufacturer from Nepal, we take pride in using this high-quality raw material to create amazing apparel. With the addition of Merino wool in our stash, this luxury has reached new heights. Merino wool, known for its softness, durability, and breathability, has been widely used in the textile industry. It is an excellent choice for hand-knitted apparel, as it enhances the beauty and comfort of the finished product.
Advantages of Merino Wool
Merino wool is highly prized for its softness, warmth, and durability. It’s also naturally moisture-wicking and breathable, which makes it an ideal choice for knitwear. Unlike other wool types, Merino wool is fine and soft, which means it can be worn directly against the skin without causing any irritation or discomfort. It also has a natural elasticity that allows it to retain its shape even after repeated use.
In addition to its comfort and durability, Merino wool is also eco-friendly and sustainable. Unlike synthetic materials, Merino wool is biodegradable and renewable. Merino sheep also have a low impact on the environment, as they require minimal resources to thrive.
Where does Merino Wool Comes from?
Merino wool comes from Merino breed Sheep. Originally bred in Spain, Merino sheep are now raised in many countries with suitable climates, including Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, which are among the leading producers of Merino wool.

Yarn Quality for Merino Knitwear Manufacturing
Merino wool comes in a variety of microns and can be blended with other materials. However, we specifically use 100% Merino wool that is either 19 or 21 microns in diameter. Our merino yarn has a thickness of 1/2.2 Nm, which means that it is relatively fine compared to other yarns. The Nm value represents the length of the yarn in meters per gram, with a higher Nm indicating a finer yarn. In this case, the 1/2.2 Nm value suggests that each gram of our merino yarn has a length of 2.2 meters.
Our knitting gauge for jersey knit is 21 stitches and 30 rows per 10 x 10 cm. This means that when knitting a jersey fabric using our merino yarn, you should aim for 21 stitches and 30 rows within a 10 x 10 cm area to achieve the intended fabric density and size.
