In order to gain the valuable wool of the merino sheep, you have to shear it like all sheep. A coherent piece of wool fleece is sheared, which can weigh between two and four kilos. Most shearing takes place in the spring, which gives stronger and longer fibers and improves the quality of the wool. Before further processing, the wool must be thoroughly washed to remove dirt, plant remains or other residues from the sheep's wool. The clean wool is then combed and loosened with a carding machine until the wool fibers lie side by side. Once this has been done, the wool can now be dyed as required. During the subsequent spinning, the fibers are tightly twisted together and finally twisted into a thread. After spinning, the yarn obtained can finally be used for weaving.
