Hello Spring, we are happy to see you! September 14, 2015 15:23
Finally the blossoms are on the trees and some warm weather is upon us!
With Spring well and truly here, we are very excited to be launching our first ever Spring collection. Featuring a lightweight t-shirt for both women and men, along with some of our existing (and favourite) lightweight pieces for women, this collection is sure to be the ultimate in comfort this season.
Merino clothing typically gets put back into the wardrobe at the end of winter, so we thought we'd share some of our favourite reasons why we love Merino in warmer climates too.
Merino wool is naturally breathable and will 'wick' moisture away from your body and move it away into the air, eliminating any clamminess or discomfort from being wet and/or sweaty...it has the added bonus of not absorbing body odours! In this process, wool can actually absorb up to 40% its weight in moisture before it begins to feel wet.
Merino wool is a natural insulator through the tiny air pockets in the fibre. It assists your body to adapt it's temperature to keep you comfortable across a broad range of atmospheric conditions.
Merino wool has a naturally high UV protection rating, to keep you safe from those hot rays.
And finally, possibly the best bit, through the hard work of wool growers Glenwood Merinos, the Merino fibre used in our clothing so incredibly fine, soft and lightweight making it oh-so comfortable and giving it the most amazing drape.
With this new collection of ours, we dare you to give wearing Merino in warmer weather a go!
A change is in the air... August 12, 2015 16:51
It's only slight, and it's intangible, but we've had a little hint that the change of seasons may just be upon us.
It started with this - beautiful wattle blooms before July had even finished! There's something about wattle and it's beautiful bright yellow colour...you can't help but smile when you see it.
Last weekend the sun shone for the first time in a week and a breeze blew that just 'smelt' of warmer days.
And the days seem a little longer - no more getting up in the pitch black or coming home from work in the dark. Yippee!
Although mostly it still feels very much like Winter, these little hints of Spring seem so promising and with the added excitement of our very first (although tiny) Spring collection, we say 'bring it on'!
Let us know what makes you excited for the change in season...or are you hanging onto these cool days?!
