Lovely kettle dyed merino processed in Virginia.
Why no Super Wash Merino:
"Cestari has been asked from time to time if we will make a super wash wool yarn. The answer is and will always be that we have not and will never make super wash wool yarn. Here is our reasoning: To make super wash wool yarn involves the use of harsh chemicals and procedures that literally transforms the structure of the wool in such a fashion as to destroy the inherit characteristics of the wool. Cestari views this as no longer being a natural fiber but a man-made yarn product. Cestari has made a conscious decision to be true to the natural beauty of wool and not super wash any of our wool yarns. " - Francis Cestari
