ROMA  100% Extra Fine Merino Wool,

Nm Count 2/30, shrink resistant



The finest qualities of wool are obtained from sheep reared primarily for the fibre. Wool can be divided into three broad categories: 'Fine, Medium’ and ‘Coarse’. In the 'Fine' range the best qualities come from the Merino sheep, encompassing again many different qualities within that category, of which the Extra Fine Merino Wool is the worlds finest and softest.

'Medium' includes a wide range of wools between 'Fine' and 'Coarse' and used in a variety of knitting yarns and furnishing. 'Coarse' often comes from sheep bred with the emphasis on wool and meat, used to a large extends for furnishing and carpets.


ROMA is 100% Extra Fine Merino Wool.

It possesses excellent handle and perfect drape, being made of a unique fibre it is easy on the skin, breathable and anti-static, a joy knitting with and even more so wearing. Light and warm, its beauty can be realized in glamorous as well as comfort knits for both Machine and Hand Knitting.

Extra Fine Merino Wool is simply the best quality of Merino Wool. The count of 2/30 is one of the most versatile as it can be employed on a domestic standard gauge knitting machine as a single strand (Design 51) as well as up to six strands used together (Design 63) without loosing its shape, and in combination with different textured yarns. The most popular usage is double i.e. two strands wound together on one cone.

This exquisite yarn can be employed for all types of Machine and Hand Knitting as well as crochet, weaving and embroidery. It is perfect for Double Bed Machines either single or double.

There is no need to wash the tension square because the yarn is 'shrink resistant', simply steam press the tension square as well as the knitted garment pieces before assembling. The yarn is beautiful to work with; the carriage moves across the needle bed much easier than with any other wool or an acrylic. Most importantly, if a mistake is made, or you change your mind about size or design, it can easily be unravelled and re-knitted.

Due to the superior natural characteristics of this yarn all the colours are of exceptional beauty.

Using two strands together (double) is the most popular thickness with a tension choice of three to eight for standard gauge machines, for Hand Knitting needle size 2.75 to 4.5 mm, depending on the texture desired.  Average requirement of ROMA for a jumper or cardigan is 350 to 400 gram already wound double, therefore the standard cone size supplied is 350 gram and 400 gram already wound double. ROMA is also supplied single on 200 gram standard cones or on request in any other weight or thickness.


Featured below are some of the patterns available for ROMA for Machine Knitting on a domestic standard gauge machine. For Hand Knitting a separate Hand Knitting Pattern is available for Designs 51, 55, 61, 63 and 65.

Care instructions:

Steam press the knitted garment pieces before sewing the seams. Steam press joined seams and finished garment.

After care: To remove food and everyday odour lay garment flat on a towel or use a suitably padded coat hanger for an hour or so preferably with open window. Being a wonderful natural yarn it does not need to be washed after each wear!

To store: Since food stains and body oils attract moths ensure that the garment is clean before packing it away. Lukewarm hand wash with a suitable detergent and slight steam pressing is recommended, or dry cleaning. To avoid 'bleeding'  separate dark colours from light colours.
