This mother-daughter team out of Copenhagen, Denmark first started designing knitwear patterns for babies and toddlers, and then added adult-sized patterns. In their effort to improve the knitting experience, they created Knitting for Olive yarns. Their vision is to offer high-quality yarns made of pure natural fibers, created with respect for both the animals and our environment.

Their Merino yarns are sourced in Patagonia, and are mulesing-free. The wool can be traced directly back to the farm it comes from. The yarn is produced in Italy. The spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.

Merino wool has a remarkable ability to regulate body temperature, keeping you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather. Its natural moisture-wicking properties keep you dry and comfortable, even in humid conditions, and its absorbent fibers can hold up to 30% of their own weight in water without feeling wet. These properties make merino wool ideal for outdoor activities, athletic wear, and travel clothing.

Hand washing is recommended. Wash in cool water with wool specific soap and dry flat. 

For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Centrifuge well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
