With Pickles Soft Merino, we’ve perfected merino yarn. We’ve made it slightly bulkier and sturdier, yet just as soft and elastic. The yarn is guaranteed itch-free and can be worn directly on the skin by both babies and children.


Our softest yarn - extra fine merino!

Extra fine merino. Pickles Soft Merino is a classic extra fine merino yarn, perfect for baby clothes and blankets. The way it's spun prevents garments from sagging or losing shape, therefore we also use it for adult garments, or in combination with a companion thread. The garments you knit can be worn directly on the skin by even the most sensitive individuals and are guaranteed itch-free. We knit it on needle sizes 3 mm/US 3 to 4 mm/US 6 with a single strand, or on bigger needles along with a companion thread. The fibers come from Peru, and the sheep are not subjected to mulesing.

100% Merino from Peru | 50 g skeins | 125 m / 136 yards | 3-4.5 mm / US 3-7 needles| Gauge per 10 cm / 4": 18-23 stitches / 26-32 rows | Hand wash

We recommend hand washing garments in cold or luke warm water, but you can put it on a spin cycle afterwards (please make sure that you do not use a rinse cycle, only spin cycle) to extract water. Then lay the garment flat on the floor and stretch/block it in the shape you want. The garment will dry in a few hours.
