Whatever the weather, nothing beats wool for keeping you warm and comfortable. The ultimate wool for outdoor wear is merino and in New Zealand we have great merino yarns for handknitting. Gillian Whalley-Torckler uses this wonderful fibre to create warm, light and breathable hats, gloves, scarves and vests for men and women.
