      Benefits of chunky merino wool

      Crease resistant fabric which holds its shape and colour
      Reactive natural fibre which responds to your body temperature
      Outstanding thermoregulating and wicking properties
      Odour resistant material due to good bacteria being able to live on the wool
      Sustainable, carbon neutral, clothing choice

      Why is our chunky merino wool hand wash only

      High street machine washable merino wool is treated with a heat resistant plastic which cracks as you wash and tumble dry. Not only is the handle harder, but aggressive washing damages the merino (and the environment), which in turn means your jumper will pill more, lose its shape and begin to look worn very quickly. This significantly reduces the lifespan of the garment.

      All true luxury jumpers are made using hand washable pure yarns. Our merino is luxuriously soft, and sourced from the Andes Mountains in Peru. The provenance of our yarn makes our merino one of the best in world.

      Invest in something special, that is made to last, and environmentally friendly.
