THE MERITS OF MERINO WOOL

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column][vc_column_text] OBR Merino Wool Jersey is soft and fine and non-itchy, providing warmth without weight. Only New Zealand Merino has these qualities as Merino sheep live in the highlands of Central Otago in severe conditions and their fleece is grown to sustain the heat of the summer and the freezing conditions of winter. New Zealand made Merino is undoubtedly the best in the world, being the weight of a good tee-shirt but warm, soft, durable and easy care. This is borne out by the fact that the master of style, Giorgio Armani was quoted in the September 2011 issue of the Australian Vogue, talking about, “A new kind of wool that is Eco sustainable, soft beyond compare and has some extraordinary properties. Thanks to the fineness and extremely high quality fibre as developed by New Zealand producers it has become the material par excellence for the luxury ready to wear industry [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Merino is known as ‘nature’s performance fibre’ as it produces a natural, renewable fabric with excellent wrinkle recovery and is recyclable and bio degradable. The reason that these fine Merino wools are so perfect for next to the skin garments is they have such a low micron count. In this very environmentally aware age, it is also interesting to note that Merino wool is a natural, renewable, sustainable and biodegradable product.
