It's more than just a lifestyle

After a summer spent back in Europe Paul is back on the road, South East Asia will be his home for the next couple of months. Working on the road and the digital nomad lifestyle is something that he's used to by now and although it has its downsides, he feels blessed to be able to do it. A small island called Derawan off the coast of Indonesian Borneo was his first port of call.

"A friend had organised a Scuba Diving trip to the area in search of Manta Rays, Whale Sharks and other marine life. We got our Whale Sharks, and the varied and colourful life of the area was amazing, but we only got glimpses of the Manta.

After a dive filled week with great people, we headed into the jungles of Central Kalimantan to spend a little time with the orangutans. These beautiful creatures are as amazing in person as I had hoped they would be and feel fortunate to have seen them in their natural environment.

Now we’re in Yogyakarta focusing more on work and enjoying all the cultural flavours of this vibrant Indonesian city. From here we move onto Chang Mai, Thailand for a month of focused work and daily Thai boxing sessions. Oh and there’s meant to be some great hiking, any opportunity to get Outside!"

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.
