Australian Merino wool
The Merino wool used to create these sweaters was sourced from 36 individual properties across Australia, including the iconic ‘Burrabogie’ farm in the Riverina, a historic wool growing region in southern New South Wales.
100% natural, renewable, biodegradable Australian Merino wool is famous worldwide for its softness, strength, innate versatility and technical benefits. Wool is also the most reused and recycled apparel fibre on the planet. Read more here.
The 19.5 micron Merino wool was then spun into yarn at Woolmark licensee XINAO Textiles in Chongfu, Zhejiang Province, China.
XINAO is a leader in research, development and innovation in the industry. The fine Cashfeel and machine-washable Easy Care wool yarn developed by XINAO are two examples of their innovations. Not only does the company innovate with what it produces, research and development are also front of mind for the business. The Knitwear Development Centre, co-founded by XINAO and The Woolmark Company, is an example of this enterprising innovation, providing a hub for research in wool textiles. Read more here.
