Merilin from the Danish yarn manufacturer "Isager" is made of wool and linen, and the Merilin yarn is therefore perfect for knitting summer designs for the Danish and Nordic summer.

80% wool, 20% linen.

Sold in balls of 50 g. 

50 g = 208 m. 

Suitable for needle size 3 to 3.5 mm - when knitted single stranded. 

The lovely Merilin yarn is a made in combination of wool and linen, that is great for summer knitting. The linen gives the yarn a cool touch, while the wool makes it suitable for the unreliable Nordic summer weather. Furthermore, this combination of wool and linen gives a beautiful mixed color effect, as the linen does not absorb as much color as the wool.

Merilin can be knitted individually for a light summer design such as our Bolette sweater. Merilin is also suitable for knitting in combination with other Isager yarns, we have for instance used it with Alpaca 1 for the Delia, Benedicte and Abelone sweaters.  

Origin of the yarn:

The Merilin yarn is manufactured by the Danish yarn brand Isager. Isager is a respected brand among knitters in Denmark and worldwide, due to their high quality and luxurious yarn. 

The company was founded by Åse Lund Jensen, who contributed greatly to the art of knitting with her yarns and knit designs. Today Isager is owned by Marianne Isager and her daughter Helga Isager, who continue to inspire knitters with their knitting books and designs. 

Isager today produce around different 20 types of yarn, all of which are of high quality and lovely to work with. See more Isager Yarn here.

Washing instructions:

We recommend hand washing your Isager Merlin yarn. 

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.

We serve customers worldwide!

Unfortunately, regulation, distances and language barriers make this a complex task, so in order to best serve all our customers we have set up 3 different web shops targeted to different countries.

Önling is based in Denmark, part of the European Union, so the main distinction is that we have to charge Danish VAT of 25% when selling to countries within the EU. Customers from countries outside of the European Union can purchase our products without paying VAT. Customers within the EU should therefore visit our EU store, whereas customers outside the EU should visit our international INT store. Both these stores are in English, so in addition to this we have a web shop in Danish for our Danish customers (who also pay VAT).
