Wendy is plant-fuelled trail runner, nature lover and proud dog momma to Ivy and Xander the Weimaraners who have even more energy than she does. Wendy will tell you she’s not that competitive but won the Inaugural Five50 Series in 2019 and has been known to be quite fond of her Strava segment crowns and has a knack of taking them back pretty quickly should someone else get in on the action. She has an ever growing collection of io running Ts and tops, including several Altitude Ts, the Mongrel crew and The Stripey zip. If she looks vaguely familiar it could be because from time to time we convince her to appear in some of our product photos.

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.
