I just want to tell you what a wonderful travelling companion my button wrap is proving to be.  It’s a glam wrap, an extra layer on my bed, a pillow (rolled up) on buses, a cosy wrap on long flights and it folds up into a small sealable plastic bag in my purse to always have on hand!!  Love it.  Joan


Just want to let you know that I LOVE the Merino button Wraps – I have 5 of them. Bought my first in Arrow town , 3 in Kaikoura and 1 in Akaroa whilst on holiday in NZ.


I am wearing the one I bought for myself as I type!! I was in NZ in the middle of a 6 month sabbatical in rural India – I was always so grateful for mine because it was SO cold at night in India and there was no glass at the windows and no heating!! Great product!

I have to thank Jan for her wonderful “Merino Wool Wraps.” I recently returned from a trip to England and France which was amazing but definitely wet and cold. When you travel from New Zealand to Europe or North America during their winter what you’ll find is although its wet and cold outside…inside they have the heat cranked up. You don’t want to have layers and layers to strip off every time you go inside.What worked perfectly for me was a warm waterproof coat and a regular long sleeve top + a “Merino Wool Wrap.” I took a red and black one. Outside I gathered my wrap into a scarf, not at all bulky, and inside I would arrange it back into a wrap changing the style according to what I was wearing adding a touch of class to my travel clothes. I wore them nearly everyday during my month long trip. They were also great on the plane. Small and light to pack but can give you that extra warmth if the plane gets chilly. Merino Wool Wraps have become an essential part of my travel wardrobe.


I love my ink wrap. It’s so handy with all the travel I do with my family. I am learning how many ways I can wear it to give me a different look.
Thanks OBR

We’re planning a trip to Italy next March. I began researching ways to make the 14 hour flight more comfortable for the wife. One of the topics was being cold while in flight, and how best to prepare for it. There was a lot of discussion about simple blankets, ponchos, and hoodies, but I have artic clothing made from Marino wool, and I looked to see what was offered for items that might be used for cover on long flights, but also used as an outer garment, to save from packing multiple items. I found your site, and saved it for future use.

I’m having the wrap sent to my daughter’s home in California, where we spend Christmas every year. The daughter will have the opportunity to check it out, and if she likes it, Santa may well visit her as well.
Thank you,

….Just a note….Ed came back and ordered another for is daughter.

I won’t leave home without it! Everywhere I go I take at least 2 pieces of OBR – one of my 6 coloured travel wraps and my ink blue long plain scarf. This is amazing when you are on the plane, better than any airline blanket!

Every week I travel somewhere and regardless of the season the one piece of clothing that is first to be packed is my OBR travel wrap! Do I have a favourite wrap? Sure do!

Because I wear mostly black I thrash my black wrap with the mother of Pearl buttons. Goes with everything, always looks smart and professional!

Thanks OBR for being my best travel buddy

I am wanting to purchase a black batwing with bottom band. I already have this style in size L Whiskey but I would like the sleeve band a little longer as I have long arms. Do you have a XL or is it possible for you to make the sleeve band longer as I see each garment is made individually. Many thanks

My OBR MERINO arrived this morning it’s really lovely. Thanks so much for my free fingerless gloves too.Great service and beautiful good quality MERINO. Will recommend you to my friends an family. Happy customer


Just to let you know they are FANTASTIC! So beautiful, useful, and so easy to have in your bag. Easy to wash and always look so elegant.

Thank you very much.


Thank you so much for your prompt reply and for rewarding me with a free Snood. I will go on-line and order my new wrap straight away.
This will be my Easter present to myself.


We got your donation today what a lovely colour.
Thank you so much if it wasn’t for people like you that they wouldn’t be the success it is


Thanks for your help, especially re the shortened sleeves. I appreciate that and am sure it will make the cardigan sit much better on me. So I’m looking to place an order for a size 16 with shortened sleeves

Susan Brown

My snood has arrived, thank you. It looks amazing with the Ink buttoned cape, just love the colour.


I’m really looking forward to receiving the cardigan as I’m hoping it will be a staple in my new and improved wardrobe.

I’m doing a bit of a wardrobe makeover for my 55th birthday – modern classics in really nice fabrics, flattering cuts, practical and comfortable pieces – and the overall impression (I hope) is that I look attractive, confident in my own skin and stylish. Wish me luck!


Are you able to make up a bell cardigan in either charcoal or grey marl in a size XL?
I have previously bought two bell cardigans, one sapphire and one in black and would really like a grey one. Many thanks,


Thank you for the finger less gloves, could I please get them in grey marl. I am really looking forward to receiving everything, I will be taking the wrap with me on a trip we have coming up to Europe.


My wrap arrived today love it. Thanks Very Much.


Thank you so much for the prompt service. My cape arrived this morning along with a pair of gloves.
It’s beautiful, thank you.


Loved the wrap I brought to go to Canada in January, hence why the mums get one as well for Mothers Day.



My lovely merino cardigan arrived yesterday – looks great on and feels lovely. Thank you for the fingerless gloves as well.

Till next time


My parcel arrived today and I’m delighted. The colour is perfect. Thanks also for the complimentary gloves. I’ll wear them for this cold snap right now.


Hi Jan, received my shrug today (I have been away from work Mon/Tues) so based on our mail delivery it would arrived yesterday, I think it was very quick.

I tried it on and am very impressed with the sleeves I think it was a great innovation as it is less likely to catch on passing desks etc. Love my mandarin gloves, great colour.


What a lovely offer.
Sapphire to match?
My Dad is 86 & has worked with merinos all his life (& still does!) Our family’s love of merino wool is genetic!
I can’t wait to wear your wrap,


Could I please have a snood 😍 . In artichoke if that’s still left, (otherwise whisky).

I’ve bought this shrug to wear in these later stages of pregnancy as belly size doesn’t matter with it and then to breastfed.


The loganberry garment arrived today by courier and I love it! Thnx for the fingerless gloves too.


How exciting – artichoke please. It will look fabulous with my black wrap.You’re very kind. Thank you.


Wow wow wow.
What a fabulous surprise on a chilly damp Friday! Thank you so much.

I will love wearing one of your gorgeous snoods – could I please choose a sapphire coloured one which I’ll team with so many items both in my working wardrobe and at weekends.
Once again thank you for your generosity and I look forward to proudly wearing the snood.

You’ve made my day.


Thankyou. I am ordering this from Australia and am planning to take it with me on holiday to the US.


I would like a mandarin snood please to go with the black merino zip cape Lovely gift.


Thanks very much. I only saw the option up to XL so figured that must be the 18/20 size? I am so happy you make pls sizes

Appreciate everything very much.


Thanks so much for considering my size, it means a lot.

I found you by surfing the net looking for plus size merino wool clothing. Very pleased I found you and looking forward to wearing my cardigan.


Thanks very much for dropping the merino and a bonus too. Very thoughtful.
I have the same in a lovey shade of pink. I got it out to pack for my week away and found a couple of wee holes in it. Those moths love the merino.

Not sure the best way to address that. I thought I would replace it but didn’t see the pink available so ordered the black.
I didn’t realise that it had to be made, so thank you for such speedy and excellent service.


Thank you very much! I have been following your Facebook campaign so I would love the snood in mandarin to go with my ink wrap


I found you on the internet- looking for a merino cardigan for travelling. I am a size 22 so it is great I can one to fit me.


Hi Jan,

Thank you so much for your generous donation to our Orsini Fundraising Luncheon, held last Thursday 3rd October at Non Solo Pizza in Parnell.

It was so appreciated that you donated an Over Shoulder Wrap in Ink and Artichoke, we cannot thank you enough for this support! The wraps were stunning and such gorgeous colours. They created quite a buzz especially being merino, the guests loved them. Again we cannot thank you enough for your support.

Thank you OBR, I am delighted with the wrap and also with the wee extra treat. I will be back for more next winter!


Thrashing my bespoke wrap here in Melbourne. Just loving it. Thankyou.


My cardigan arrived today! It is beautiful! It fits beautifully and is very flattering for my shape. Thank you so much .
