Outsiders Winter Challenge

Need some extra information on our challenge? Check out our FAQs below as your questions will most likely be answered. However, if you need to contact us for something more complex, feel free to contact our friendly team here.

What if I want to do more than one activity?

No problems. Just sign up for the activity you would say is your ‘primary’ activity and do that. Everything else is a bonus.

What’s a virtual check point and how do I check in to it?

It’s basically a button you have to click on in the weekly emails we’ll send. One click, and we know you’re all checked in, and you qualify for that week’s prize draw.

What if I miss a week? Do I get disqualified?

Nope, doesn’t matter. Just check in whenever you can to go into that week’s prize draw and if you’ve signed up for it, you’ll get your bling at the end.

Are there different medals for the different activities or distances?

It’s the same medal for everyone. You’ll know which one you did. That’s the important bit.

Can I buy Winter Challenge merch even if I don’t sign up for the challenge?

You can buy Winter Challenge merch any time you like. Just click hereand away you go.

Can I sign up even if the challenge has already started?

It’s no big deal if you missed the start and want to get in on it a bit later. As long as you’re signed up by the end of June, you can still earn your bling and be good to go.

Got any other questions? Ask away and we’ll do our best to answer them.

Fabric Guide

While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability. 

It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.

Ethically Made. Ethically Sourced. Perfectly Natural.
