Merino wool was so prized for its softness that merino sheep, first bred in Spain, were banned in the 1800s from exportation until a gift of a small flock was made to an English friend of a friend. Now, merino wool is beloved for its softness and fine, long fibers, making it less likely to pill and better able to trap warmth. It's no surprise Elie Tahari chose it for his Adele Sweater, long and draped, with a shawl neckline.
