Share Your Adventure to win $50.

At ioMerino we love all kinds of outdoor adventures, and we want to know all about yours. We’re on the lookout for your best adventure articles to share with everyone in our newsletters.

So if you’ve had a good outdoor adventure, write it up into a story and send it through to us, and if we use it, we’ll give you a $50 ioMerino voucher to spend on anything you like in our online store. All you need to do is follow these simple guidelines:

  1. Your story can be anywhere between 100 and 1,000 words long. 
  2. It can be based on any kind of outdoor activity - hiking, camping, skiing, snowboarding, running, cycling… pretty much anything outdoors.
  3. While pictures aren’t mandatory, we’re more likely to use your story if it has some good pictures to go along with it. (They don’t have to be pro pictures, even decent smart phone pictures will be fine.)
  4. If you used your ioMerino, be sure to let us know. Likewise, if you’ve not yet purchased any ioMerino but wish you'd had some to wear, make sure you mention that.

    Then, simply send your stories to us here to be in the running. If you'd prefer to pre-pitch your idea for us to review before writing your article, that's cool too!

    The not so fine print: You will retain ownership of all words and pictures. If we choose to use your story, we will send you a $50 gift voucher in return for the right to reproduce your story and images in our blog and/or in our newsletter.

    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.
