A NATURAL, BIODEGRADABLE AND RENEWABLE FIBRE
Australian Merino wool is an entirely natural fibre grown year-round by Australia's 70 million Merino sheep. Grazing on extensive grassland terrain, Merino sheep in Australia are free-range animals that live a largely carefree existence. From the high rainfall areas of the eastern seaboard to the drier pastoral areas of the west, Merino sheep have become an integral part of the iconic Australian landscape.
Merino wool is composed of a natural protein that is biodegradable, similar to the protein found in human hair. When disposed of, Merino wool decomposes in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nitrogen-based nutrients back into the earth, acting like a fertiliser. In contrast, synthetic fibres can be extremely slow to degrade.
RESPONSIBLE MERINO SHEEP FARMING
Raised on sustainable grassland terrain, Australian Merino sheep are well-suited to grazing a variety of natural pastures. For generations, the farmers who produce this fine wool have shown how the Australian rural landscape can be managed effectively while protecting the natural environment, supporting rural communities, and meeting the needs of increasingly environmentally-aware customers.
Well looked-after sheep living in a good environment produce the best wool. So it's in the interests of the Merino farmers, as well as the sheep, to commit to exceptionally high standards of animal welfare, responsible use of land and water resources, and sustainable farming for the benefit of future generations of their families and communities.
Merino wool is one of the most fine and versatile amongst the natural fibers. Due to its natural qualities and benefits, including breathability and insulating capacity, Merino wool has historically been used across different seasons. It has the unique ability to keep the wearer warm in cold temperatures and cool and fresh in the hottest climates.
