Merino wool is a natural material originating from Australian Merino sheep. Despite wool’s undisputable sustainable qualities, there are careful ethical considerations to be made when choosing to use wool. Therefore, we only use cruelty free, certified mulesing free Merino wool.
These high-quality natural fibres create a garment that is a joy to wear, (hooray for wool that doesn’t itch!) and will stand the test of time. Merino wool is perfect for both summer and winter due to its breathability and temperature regulating properties. It will keep you warm and insulated in cold weather, and cool and comfortable in the summer months - plus it is hypo-allergenic, making it the perfect fibre for sensitive skin. Merino wool also repels dirt, stains and wrinkles and is naturally antibacterial – which means minimal washing and ironing! However, when needed it is machine washable, giving it big practicality points. Merino wool is naturally biodegradable.
