About: Shaniko wool comes from Merino & Merino/Rambouillet cross bred sheep raised by family owned ranches in the Great Basin Region of the West. At 20.4 microns it is very soft making it perfect for next to skin garments. Shaniko wool holds a Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certification with the aim to protect the welfare of the animals, the environment, and the people in the supply chain.
