Australian Merino wool lands this week
Heads up people! We’re super excited to announce the arrival of our Australian Merino wool pieces online this week including our super fine, silk-trimmed Merino wool cape (pictured above).
This season we’ve upped the chic factor on many of our wool cardigans and tops by trimming them in silk. So you get the warmth, comfort and sustainable qualities of wool, with a little added glamour and shine.
For those of you who may not already know, Australian Merino wool is undergoing a renaissance as the world’s most luxurious natural fibre and is prized the world over for it’s super fine quality. For a taste of its reinvention we’re loving Woolmark’s exhibition Wool Modern (pictured top), which started off in London and hits Sydney later this month. From Alexander McQueen to Vivienne Westwood and the king of ‘80s sharp silhouettes, Thierry Mugler, the exhibition shows wool at its most avant-garde. Yes, the humble Australian sheep is a little more fashion-foward than you’d expect. And recent innovations mean wool fabrics are now incredibly soft too... Suddenly the imminent arrival of winter doesn’t feel so bad after all.
