Next-To-Skin First Layer®Natural
Natural Next-To-Skin Fabrics
New Zealand Boucle Merino
For our outer layer Mierno garments we use a high quality, double knit Boucle with a composition of 93% Merino. The fabric has a looped outer surface with a smooth underside>
For a knitted Merino Garment this 360gram/sq m 21 micron fabric provides maximum warmth and wind protection. We use a soft Micro Fleece liner around the inside collar and on some styles extend this to the shoulders and front zip facings to provide extra comfort, insulation and tailoring. The 7% polyester core stabilises the boucle construction to allow for hand wash care. Our boucle merino is grwon in New Zealand and is also processed and knitted here.
New Zealand Mid-Weight Merino
Mid-Weight Merino is Knitted and milled in New Zealand. This 280 grams/sqm, 21 micron fabric is composed of 86% New Zealand Merino and 14% Polyester. The durable, hard wearing loop outer surface is knitted for maximum loft and warmth. The 14% polyester content stabilises the fabric for complete machine washable care.
New Zealand Superfine Merino
The 18.5 micron Superfine Merino used in our wool
garments is one of the world's finest and rarest natural fibres.
As a natural Next-To-Skin fabric Superfine Merino
has two very real performance benefits:
- Merino can control the level of moisture within
each fibre to keep you warm in cold temperatures and cool in
- Superfine Merino fibres can absorb and disguise
body odour allowing garments to be worn continually for days.
18.5 micron Superfine Merino knitted in a 190 gram/m²
single jersey construction provides a stable, soft, machine washable
fabric that will never pill. 18.5 micron Superfine Merino garments
feel as soft as your favourite cotton t-shirt but have the strength
and hard wearing resiliency of steel. Superfine Merino is the fastest
drying, easiest care wool available.
New Zealand Superfine Merino is an ideal Next-To-Skin fabric for travel
or for anyone wanting the all day comfort of a natural fibre.
New Zealand Superfine Stretch Merino
By adding 5% Lycra® to 18.5 micron Superfine
Merino our fabric mill has produced a two-way stretch wool that
is guaranteed never to lose its shape with wear. Ideal for active
foundation wear, Superfine Stretch Merino allows close fitting,
thermally efficient garments with complete freedom of movement.
All our Superfine Stretch Merino garments have low-profile, flat-lock
seams for maximum comfort.
New Zealand Merino Ultra Fine
Merino Ultra Fine is our finest and lightest merino. It uses a 17.5 micron Merino knitted in a 140gram/sqm single jersey construction to provide a stable, very soft, machine washable fabric. Ultrafine is the best performing, next-to-skin layer in the outdoors as it combines fast drying properties with breathability and warmth.
