New Zealand’s pristine alpine environment, majestic merino and innovative growing systems combine to produce the world’s most exclusive natural fibre - New Zealand merino.
New Zealand merino fibres are exceptionally long, strong, flexible and extremely fine.
These distinctive characteristics are the reason New Zealand merino garments are uniquely soft, and sensuously comfortable against the skin - the fine fibre causes no irritation or prickle.
New Zealand merino’s fine, lightweight fibres breathe with the wearer, meaning there is no unpleasant 'clammy' sensation and provide year round comfort in warm or cool weather.
New Zealand merino is a renewable resource and involves a natural growth process in pollution free environments. It is recyclable and biodegradable.
