Single Origin Australian Merino Wool
In selected knitwear styles, we use Australian Merino wool sourced from a single farm in Tasmania that is certified by the Responsible Wool Standard.
We blend this wool with silk to give the fabric a subtle lustre and superior drape.
Australian wool is globally renowned for its high quality. It is warm, breathable yet durable, making it the perfect fibre for winter layering.
Verified Australian Merino Wool
Australian Merino wool is known for being finer than conventional wool, resulting in a beautifully soft fibre that is gentle against the skin. It is celebrated for its luxurious handle and natural thermo-regulating properties, allowing you to stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
We partner with Oritain to scientifically trace our Verified Merino wool fibres back to Australian farms that are certified by the Responsible Wool Standard— a globally recognised standard that promotes animal welfare and progressive land management.
Wool Blends 01
We blend wool with a variety of natural and synthetic fibres across our collections. Some fibres, such as hemp, are chosen for their crisp, dry hand feel, while synthetic fibres such as elastane add stretch and durability.

The Good Cashmere Standard®
Cashmere is a luxury fibre that is beautifully soft, lightweight and lofty. Delicate yet durable, it is rarer than other wool types, making it an investment yarn. We use a variety of pure cashmere and cashmere blends throughout our collections.
We were the first Australian fashion retailer to partner with The Good Cashmere Standard® by the Aid by Trade Foundation. An independent and voluntary standard, it supports the welfare of cashmere goats, protects natural resources and supports the local farmers that produce it.
Cashmere Blends 02
We blend cashmere with fibres such as wool, cotton, alpaca and nylon to achieve a variety of different finishes. Some blends are chosen for their texture, others for their durability and strength.

Alpaca & Mohair 03
A fine, silky wool fibre, alpaca has a soft sheen which makes it unique. It is recognised as one of the warmest fibres, while also remaining lightweight and fluffy. In our collections, alpaca is often blended with fibres such as Merino wool, mohair, nylon and elastane.
Durable yet soft to the touch, mohair is considered a luxury wool fibre characterised by its distinct lustre. It is often blended with fibres such as Merino wool, alpaca and nylon due to its strength and subtle sheen.

Australian cotton is renowned for its quality, featuring a longer staple than conventional cotton. When used in knitwear, Australian cotton creates a light and breathable fabric, making it ideal for trans-seasonal layering. Our Australian cotton knits are soft, durable and easy to care for.
Australian cotton growers are recognised as leaders in water-efficient farming, adopting cotton varieties suited to the Australian climate.
