I work with a lot of merino wool, and in New Zealand we seem to have an abundance of it!
Merino wool is a high-quality, natural fiber, prized for its
softness, warmth, and breathability.
Its a high-quality, natural fiber that comes from merino sheep. It is an ideal
choice for clothing especially in case of jumpers/ sweaters/ pullovers.
. They are often used as layering pieces during cold weather. Merino jumpers are also popular among outdoor enthusiasts because of the wools moisture-wicking properties and ability to regulate body temperature.
One of the key advantages of merino wool is its ability to retain heat even
when wet, which makes it an ideal choice for jumpers that may be worn in
wet or damp conditions. Additionally, the wool is naturally odor-resistant,
which means that merino jumpers can be worn multiple times before
washing. Seriously, you can wear a top about 5 times before it starts to get smelly
Also merino wool is extremely soft and comfortable to wear even against
sensitive skin, and because its a natural fiber, merino has an expensive classy look. I collect merino in every colour imaginable, so you can custom order your favourite colour combinations.
I create ponchos and kimono jackets too.
