Although our 100% pure sheep wool is usually found to be soft, we are well aware that every person is different.
-> If you have sensitive skin, please mind that this doesn't mean that you can't have fun with one of our kits or fibers! 😉
We have plenty of kits made out of Meriwool and Baby Alpaca. These fibers are well known to be extremely soft and they are particularly suitable for babies and young children who are often prone to have sensitive skin.
Baby Alpaca wool is much softer than sheep's wool, so in the case of sensitive skin, it could definitely be recommended, although in some cases even this very soft wool may be found to be slightly itchy. Alpacas are not sheep, but similar to the llamas, native of the South American Andes but smaller and they produce much softer fur.
Apart from that, we can offer other alternatives such as Mixed Yarn (50% certified organic wool, 50% certified organic cotton), Touch Me Mohair (baby alpaca, superkid mohair and mulberry silk) or The Recycled Yarn (95% recycled cotton). For extremely sensitive skin, our Pima Cotton (GMO free) and Bamboo are a safe bet.
Feel free to try our samples first, so you can touch our yarns before taking any decision.
-> Are you allergic to wool or animal fibers in general?
In this case, it is better not to take any risk and go for Cotton (GMO free), The Recycled Yarn, or Bamboo which are our non-wool options. We offer both knitting as well as crochet kits for these fibers! 👍
