Ready To Trek With JLF

June 26, 2020

If you’re taking part in the Jodi Lee Foundation Trek this year, first of all, well done for supporting such a great cause! Hopefully you’ve been training, which tends to work a little better than crossing your fingers and hoping for the best - although both are perfectly acceptable strategies. The other thing you’ll need to be thinking about is what to wear.

Meet the non-believers.

Meet the non-believers.

March 15, 2019

Like a lot of people, Stevi-Lee wasn’t convinced our clothes were good value. So naturally we figured she would be the perfect person to reviewer them. If we could convert her, perhaps other customers would believe her rather than the usual claims all companies make about how good their products are. Did we change this ioMerino sceptic into a believer?

The stuff some companies don’t like to talk about

March 07, 2019

Our products are priced based on many factors, and we’re happy to be totally up front about it. If you’ve ever wondered why our clothes cost what they do, or why we often discount less than other companies, you may might find this quite interesting.

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.
