Optim merino is one of the most ultimate luxury fibers available. It is
between 12 and 14 microns, and feels very similar to angora rabbit fiber
in terms of softness.
Optim wool is created when regular merino
is stretched, causing the fibers to thin out and become finer than they
once were. This process also causes the wool to become superwash, which
means it will not wet felt (but can still be needle felted). This
creates an extremely easy to dye fiber without the hassle of worrying
about it felting the way you would with normal super fine fibers. It
also makes care significantly easier.
This is one of my absolute favorite fibers to work with.
