Merino wool dates back hundreds of years and is derived from the merino sheep, an animal that has been bred for centuries. Although its origin is not confirmed, it is said the first merino sheep known was introduced to Australia in 1788. Australian farmers used selective breeding in order to produce the finest merino wool, a process still remaining today.
Merino wool is a natural and sustainable resource because merino wool continues to grow each year after the annual harvesting of the fleece. Merino sheep live on a diet of water and grasses and live outdoors, the fibres are much softer than normal wool fibres, so can be worn against even the most sensitive skin.
Merino wool in high fashion actually began when the late Coco Chanel used wool for a dress, consequently making a huge impact on the fashion industry due to the luxuriousness of the Chanel brand. It was not long after the influential designer Christian Dior began to use wool within his couture designs, around the design period referred to as “The new look”.
Lightweight and comfortable to wear, it has excellent warmth-to-weight ratio, it also naturally anti-odour, antibacterial and non-allergenic.
