With each new season brings a sassind product that we all fall in love with. This season it is our merino collection, coming in two new styles in three new colours. What gives these items the edge is the fabric that they are made from, gorgeous Australian merino that has been spun and dyed in such a fashion that it elevates it to the next level.
Our new fine merino is spun and dyed in Borgosesia, Italy. Most commonly referred to as 'cash wool' because of it's comparative feel to cashmere, cash wool is the market leader in merino yarns - the ‘Rolls Royce’ of merinos.
Being able to use this type of wool for new products has meant a slight increase in price but also means a massive increase in comfort. The gauge is bigger, the wool heavier and the warmth more enveloping. The knitwear collection is soft to touch and flattering to wear, and although heavier it does not add bulk to your body. Making our merino knits a dream to wear.
