Unleashing Merino’s Brilliance

Merino Performance

 Natural. Sustainable. Renewable. Biodegradable. And that’s just for starters.

The more you discover about amazing Merino fibre, the better it gets. We believe no other fibre, natural or otherwise, comes close to offering what Merino provides.

Consider these performance facts

  • Merino fabric has the best moisture uptake compared to cotton, polyamide, polyester, polyacrylic and nylon.
  • Merino garments regulate body temperature with their superior insulation and breathability
  • Merino garments remain fresher for longer
  • Merino fibres naturally absorb UV radiation
  • Merino fibres are flame resistant

Merino Garments deliver it all, and more

  • Knitted Merino garments can be machine washed and tumble dried
  • Spills can easily be wiped away
  • Merino fabric has excellent wrinkle recovery
  • Knitted Merino can be used in a wide range of fibre blends, constructions and finishes. It can actually enhance other fibres.
  • When dyed Merino clothing is colourfast
  • Merino fibres have a natural elasticity so they stretch with the body’s movement and return to their natural shape
