New Zealand Boucle Merino
Additional information from manufacturer
For our outer layer Merino garments we use a high quality, double knit Boucle with a 93% Merino content. A 7% polyester core ensures the fabric remains stable during washing and wear. The fabric is constructed with a looped outer surface and a smooth underside.
This extremely hard wearing 360 gram/m2 21 micron fabric provides maximum warmth and wind protection. We use a soft Micro Fleece liner inside the collars and extend this to the shoulders and front zip facings to provide extra comfort, insulation and tailoring on some of the styles.
Our boucle merino is the closest we come to a home grown generic New Zealand fabric. The merino is grown in New Zealand's McKenzie High Country, it is sent to Wellington to be processed, then to Auckland to be knitted into fabric. From here it is sent to our Christchurch factory where our skilled machinists sew the garments in full view of the Merino’s Southern Alps homeland. Merino boucle styles are true garments of our land.
Warm hand wash (40°C). Use specific Woolmark approved detergent. Wash inside out, rinse well in cold water. Slow/Normal spin. Dry flat. Do not tumble dry or bleach. Warm iron with damp pressing cloth. May be dry cleaned. Be aware of “eco’ detergent claims as we have found some products have very high PH (alkaline) readings that can damage the wool fibres. We recommend using Woolmark approved detergents only. Allow up to 3% shrinkage.
