Merino wool (fibre) is an entirely natural composite. The fibres are extremely fine and soft. The biggest herds of sheep are raised in New Zealand and Australia. Merinos are regarded as having the highest quality wool of any sheep. The thinner the fibre the higher its value. The thickness of the Merino wool fibre named Cashwool, spun in Italy in Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia is around 16 microns. Textiles woven with Cashwool are remarkably light and warm; thermoregulation is one of their basic values. Important! Sheep do not suffer during shearing. It is an extremely important activity, to prevent overheating.
