Nuraxi Merino Wool
Prized for their incredibly soft coat, which produces wool of incomparable softness and warmth, merino sheep are an ancient breed. They are celebrated for their hardiness, evidenced by the survival of wild flocks in extreme climates. The merino wool used in the pieces we carry are sourced from the heights of the Patagonian Andes. Nuraxi vows the wool we source never comes from sheep exposed to the practice of mulesing.

Merino wool does not have the coarse, itchy feel of standard wool because the merino fibers are much finer than standard sheep’s wool. Like most wools, merino contains lanolin, which has antibacterial properties, but unlike "traditional" wool, merino is threadlike and softer. Merino fibers have a low micron count of 21- 24. The higher the count, the rougher the fiber, and 24 and below are the very softest.

The unprocessed merino used in the Cloud Collection blankets, has a nearly pure white color, incredible strength and natural elasticity, and is incomparably soft against the skin.
