British Falklands Merino Wool Quality

Ample grasslands, low-stocking densities, and nearly nonexistent disease pressure has made organic methods the default approach of Falkland’s ranchers. In the Falklands, there is no need for sheep dipping, where the animals are literally bathed in potent parasiticides, nor is it necessary to carry out the controversial practice of mulesing to avoid the fly (and maggot) infestations which are a huge problem in warmer climates. Animal welfare groups are actively campaigning against mulesing and neither practice is permitted under organic standards.

Giant Knitting Wool Yarn Quantity Recommendations

Giant knitting and extreme knitting are great fun and the yarns knit up quickly into soft and cosy statement pieces.  The following is a rough guide but please feel free to contact me for more precise guidance:

  • Cowl = 1 x 500gm
  • Cushion / Pillow 18″ square = 1 x 1kg balls
  • Cushion / Pillow 24″ square = 1 x 1.5kg balls
  • Throw = 3 x 360 gm balls
  • Throw 60″ x 36″ = 2 x 1.5kg balls
  • Blanket 48″ x 80″  = 4 x 1.5kg balls
