Merino Wool Cap
The Superfine Merino fabric we use is 100% Australian grown, spun and woven. It is not sent offshore to be processed but is made in Victoria, Australia. This means that our Merino retains a low carbon footprint by reducing the transportation required from the farm to our supplier, to us; all of which add to the already high sustainable credentials of wool fibre.
Our Merino is also certified ‘non-Mulesing’, meaning it is sourced from ‘best farming practices’ growers that ensure the highest standards of animal welfare.
The 170gsm (5 oz) Superfine Merino is light and tough, yet soft against the skin with a non itch feel. As the 170gsm regulates temperature so well, we use it as a base layer in winter and an only layer in summer, and have tested it from 0 degrees C all the way through to 38 deg C and can vouch for its outstanding abilities.
Other key features of Merino are:
- Fully breathable.
- Natural thermally regulating – keeps you warm in winter AND cool in summer.
- Naturally anti bacterial and odour free.
- Flame resistance.
- Sustainable, renewable and biodegradable.
- Ethically grown, locally.
- Guaranteed 17 Micron, Superfine.
- Not blended with other, lesser quality wool.
- Machine washable.
- Excellent colour fastness.
