Amble is a soft yet durable yarn from Merino wool and alpaca fibers processed with an eco-friendly anti-shrinkage "Easy-wash" treatment. The recycled nylon adds strength and durability. This yarn was named Amble to reflect the kind of slow, relaxed walking we enjoy. The Easy-wash method is chlorine-free and AOX-free, making it the best environmental choice for producing machine washable wool. The wool and alpaca fibres are treated with eco-friendly oxidants to remove the scales that ordinarily cause wool and alpaca to shrink when washed by machine. The oxidants used are sourced in Germany and are certified under the REACH, Oeko-tex and ZDCH (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemical) standards. This means that the Easy-wash treatment does not create hazardous chemicals, which is not the case with most machine washable wools in today’s market.
