Merino Lab products are hand-made using premium New Zealand Merino wool. Merino wool is a natural fibre and is among the world’s softest and finest wools. It’s naturally elastic, lightweight, breathable, quick-drying and has antibacterial properties. Merino wool’s exceptional properties make it ideal for everyday wear, all year round.

It's no secret, we proudly fly the flag for Merino. We discovered Merino wool a number of years ago when we were researching what to wear in Iceland during the winter, when the weather is particularly harsh. We came across Merino wool and learnt about its exceptional qualities such as temperature regulation, odour-resistance, softness and elasticity. We purchased a number of Merino wool items for our trip and were genuinely amazed how great the material felt when worn and how fresh our clothing kept even after long hikes.
We also love the fact that Merino wool is an all natural fibre and is 100% renewable. It is truly nature's wonder fibre and we wanted to create and share Merino products with the world.
