Knitting for Olive Cotton Merino is a soft and light blend of 70% cotton and 30% wool. The wool adds bounciness and elasticity to the cotton, making our Cotton Merino a lovely predominantly cotton yarn that can be used all year round and that is perfect in everyday garments.
Our Merino wool comes from non-mulesed sheep and our spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.
The yarn is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified.

Knitting for Olive makes knitting patterns for the ones you love – and now for you, too.
At the end of 2015, they started selling knitting patterns for babies and toddlers. They quickly expanded to children’s sizes as well, and in 2018 they designed our first adult-sized patterns.
To be able to give you the best knitting experience, they decided to offer Knitting for Olive yarns. Our vision is to offer high-quality yarns made of pure natural fibres created with respect for both the animals and our environment.
They are a family-run business based in Copenhagen. They are surrounded by lots of kids, who give us countless inspiration and ideas.
