Knitting for Olive’s super-soft merino is produced in Italy following ethical, technical and environmental standards in order to create a yarn free from harmful chemicals and especially suitable  for babies and children.

Their knitting patterns compliment their yarns beautifully. They initially created patterns for babies and toddlers and then quickly expanded to children’s sizes, and more recently adult-sized patterns.

Kaleidoscope’s rating = KKKKK 

Skin softness :  5 /5–  Easy to wear against the skin.

Colour palette:  5/5 – An amazing palette of very wearable soft natural tones.

Pattern usage :  5 /5 – A lot of baby and children’s patterns use this yarn weight  and it’s quite common to use in combination with kid silk mohair for adult sweaters and cardigans to add softness & bulk without weight.

Value for money: 5 /5 –  250m is a generous amount of ethical environmentally friendly yarn!

Wear and tear: 5 /5 –  gentle hand washing will always prolong the life of any merino wool.
