Benefits of Merino
Merino Wool is 100% natural grown year-round by Australia's 68 million sheep, consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass.
When a wool fibre is disposed of, it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Every year Australian sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.
At microscopic level, each Merino Wool fibre is like a coiled spring that returns to its natural shape after being bent. This gives Merino wool garments a natural resistance to wrinkles.
Fashion designers and activewear brands can choose from a range of innovative treatments and manufacturing techniques to create unique textures and finishes on Merino Wool garments.
Merino Wool is one of the most breathable fibres. Wool fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour then move it away to evaporate into the air.
The lanolin that is naturally present in Merino Wool is anti-odour, antibacterial and non-allergenic. It is a fine fibre making it incredibly soft & comfortable to wear, even for the most sensitive of skins.

Cashmere has natural temperature regulating properties and at up to three times more insulating than sheep wool, cashmere knitwear will keep you warm in the coldest of climates.
It is also the perfect weight. It’s perfect for transeasonal periods, when the weather can be temperamental. It’s also ideal for layering through winter, without adding bulk
