Lost in Outback Australia

June 04, 2016

As an official sponsor of the SA Rogaining State Champs, it was awesome to have ioMerino ambassador Sally and 'Team ioMerino' there. They competed in the 24 hour Rogaine, staying out all night and all day.  Safe to say they were glad they had their ioMerino layers at night but didn’t overheat during the hot sunny day?

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.
