Merino Knitwear New Zealand Made
Merino Wool NZ is a Natural Choice for Knitwear
Great Kiwi Yarns' fine merino knitwear has been developed by recent technology to provide all the qualities of traditional merino wool, including an incredibly lightweight quality. Despite this lightness, our garments are sustainable, durable, warm, and incredibly soft. Fine merino clothing brings an unparalleled sense of comfort and well-being that many find better to wear than traditionally knitted garments.
Merino wool has long been a favourite due to its remarkable qualities. Fine merino knitwear made from high-quality 100% Merino wool has always been a wardrobe staple in countries worldwide because it regulates body temperature exceptionally well. Merino wool not only provides great warmth relative to its weight, but it also absorbs moisture vapour, which means less sweat on your body. Merino is also much better at protecting you from UV radiation than most synthetics and cotton.
The Merino wool is a type of ultra-fine soft wool, one of the lightest due to its characteristics as thinner and smoother than more common wools. It is as thin as 1/10th the thickness of human hair.
The Merino sheep can live in extremely cold conditions. Their wool has excellent insulation properties, allowing the sheep to face temperatures encountered in the South Island of New Zealand, from -10 to +30, with no problem.
In our garments, the wool keeps its wearer warm in winter and cool in summer.
Merino wool is ideal for keeping dry, even when very active or under warm conditions. Due to the complex structure of the thread, Merino wool has incredible and unique moisture absorption properties..
Whereas synthetic materials need chemical enhancement to absorb some low-wave radiation, Merino wool can absorb UV radiation with ease. Thus, it is the ideal choice to protect you from harmful UV damage, and it does this naturally..
The Fine Merino fibre is even softer than traditional Merino, to the point that the fibres bend upon skin contact. Thanks to this bending motion, the Fine Merino fibres never leave you with the “prickly” feeling some other, stiffer wools might. Therefore, you will always enjoy the feeling of these garments on your skin.
Happily, Merino wool is also naturally antimicrobial. It naturally prevents the transmission of odours through the material, even repelling them. Therefore, garments made from this wool remain naturally odour free.
