100% Superfine Merino Wool (non-superwash)

50 g  |  125 m  |  136 yds


    Pura is a 100% superfine merino wool yarn that is lightweight, breathable, and thermo-regulating. Merino wool is significantly softer and more flexible than other wools, making it much more comfortable to wear.

    Because Pura is a non-superwash merino wool, it maintains the luxurious properties of the merino fibers. It is breathable, thermo-regulating, and lightweight. Merino wool naturally contains antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties.

    This yarn has excellent stitch definition and is well suited for color work projects. Pura will work well in almost any garment application ranging from sweaters to accessories.

    Made in Italy

    Pura is made from mulesing-free merino wool.

    Pura yarn is so soft!

    I love Pura yarn! It is so soft and the stitch definition is great.

    Plush, Smooth, utterly delightful

    This is HANDS DOWN the softest non-superwash merino that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The yarn is smooth and bouncy with some lovely stretch to it. I’ve worked it up in stockinette to achieve a gorgeous fabric for a next-to-skin cardigan that I’m now itching to finish.

    great yarn

    The Pura yarn met my expectations. It was nice to handle, and knit up with a sturdy feel. I look forward to trying it on a cardigan next time.

    thank you.
