We have a number of natural fibre garments in our knitwear collection, but Merino maintains a rivalry with Cashmere in terms of preference. 

The important thing to note is that Merino shares a lot of the same qualities as Cashmere, however, Merino is much more economical as it comes from the wool of a sheep.  Merino is naturally softer and finer than most wool, but despite its delicate appearance, the fabric will stretch more than other fabrics and still return to its original shape. 

Merino wool is regarded as one of the world's finest natural fibres and always takes pride of place in our collection.


A large advantage of Merino wool is that it is not as itchy as regular wool can be. It is also non-static making it perfect to please even the trickiest of knit wearers. So if it’s a comfortable, year-round, and affordable knit you are searching for, Merino will likely tick all your boxes. 

 


Merino is a naturally insulating material making it warmer than other wools; it is also water repellent, UV resistant and will keep you cool in the summer, making it a true all season wool. Our Merino collection comes in a range of colours and styles, giving you plenty to choose from and different options depending on the season.

 

These pieces are part of our Munrospun merino label which can be found in-store and online - both here.
