Merino wool is nature’s original eco and performance fibre, grown on the simple mix of fresh air, sunshine, water and grass. Wool’s unique journey from sheep to leading retailers weaves age-old techniques with modern technology, transforming the original eco and performance fibre into luxuriously soft and highly technical yarns, fabrics and end products.

Discover the amazing journey of wool from the farm in Australia right through the global supply chain to create innovative wool fabrics and garments. Wool is processed by two methods, worsted processing and woollen processing. Once the wool fibre is carded and combed, it is spun into yarn. The wool yarn is then knitted or woven into wool fabric. Wool dyeing happens at any stage. Wool fabrics create luxurious, technical and eco-friendly products.
