Merino wool is an entirely natural fibre, grown year round. It is biodegradable, sustainable and completely renewable, with Merino sheep producing a new fleece every year.
Merino wool fibres are extremely fine, which makes them much more flexible than traditional, coarser wool fibres. Merino feels soft and gentle next to your skin.
Unlike synthetic fabrics, merino is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature helping you to stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot.
Johnstons of Elgin merino wool products are suitable for every climate. Our products crafted in fine merino wool have an exceptional handle, drape and ability to follow the form of the wearer.
