Why no Super Wash Merino? Cestari has not and will never make super wash wool yarn. Their reasoning is that to make super wash wool yarn involves the use of harsh chemicals and procedures that literally transforms the structure of the wool in such a fashion as to destroy the inherit characteristics of the wool. Cestari views this as no longer being a natural fiber but a man-made yarn product. Cestari has made a conscious decision to be true to the natural beauty of wool and not super wash any of their wool yarns.
Cestari Fine Merino yarn is spun on a traditional woolen system, kettle dyed. Made in the USA! We are pleased to carry this yarn and hope you will love it!
Cestari wool is washed using a scouring process that keeps natural lanolin in the yarn and maintains the natural bounce and texture of the wool. They prefer this scouring process to the more contemporary carbonizing process because a carbonizing acid bath, done overseas, would burn out the vegetable matter, leaving the wool very clean but removing the lanolin and leaving the wool with less bounce and changing the original texture. Sometimes specks of easily removable hay or straw remain in our yarn; owner Francis Chester likes to say that if you put his yarn to your ears, you can almost hear the sounds of life within it.
