More about Merino.....Merino is an amazing fabric. Merino wool is really soft, and it isn't scratchy like “regular” wool. That's because merino wool fibres are much finer than standard sheep's wool. Make it worsted spun and the results are stunning.
It's is super light but very warm – it's weight to warmth metric is brilliant. The fabric has a natural loft that traps heat very efficiently between the fibres, making it warm and it is also good in the warmer weather as merino regulates your body temperature really well.
This makes merino a 3 season material – it is called extra fine for a reason, and our Extrafine Merino is one of the best merinos. It breathes, and unlike bulky wool can be layered in late September or fly solo in early May, and all the days in-between…
The cuffs, rib and neck trims use a Merino & Silk blend created in the same factory - Silk adds a wonderful charm, with the sheen and the brilliance it gives to colours. The blend with this super fine merino makes our knitwear a precious item.
Our jumpers are made to flatter and forgive. The jumper is fitted.
For a slim fit buy your size. For a looser fit buy a size bigger. If you are slim with longer arms you should be able to buy your size without having to go up a size. Don’t worry the arms will not look too long for the rest.
Merino and silk are natural fibres. We recommend doing a cool hand wash or specialist dry clean.
Washing by hand is highly recommended for your Merino and Silk blend jumper. Turn your garments inside-out, hand wash using cool water. Avoid soaking for too long, a few minutes to help loosen the dirt before gently squeezing and rinsing, first with cool water.
Pre-dry your jumper by gently rolling it in a towel – never wring. Reshape the garment while damp, especially the V and dry flat not on direct heat.
Occasionally it may be good to iron your jumper to keep the fibres in good condition. Bizarrely low heat ironing makes the jumper super soft by helping the fibres smooth down and go back to the soft state they were when you first bought the jumper! Iron lightly when the jumper is still damp, with a finishing cloth in between and hold the iron on a low setting possible & ideally without steam so you do not ruin the fibres. If dry ironing, use a slightly damp cloth in between to avoid glazing. Obviously, avoid the rib and cuffs.

Olive green sits between the warm yellow and the darker green on the colour wheel. Olive green is most often seen in country outdoor clothing. It echoes the colours of life in the country. It is known as an international colour of peace.
Olive green evokes space, wisdom, and compassion for humanity. It is also associated with harmony, diplomacy, and self-love. We think sunshine, life, vitality and also love the fact no-one looks bad in olive green! It suits every skin tone – it is a stunning colour yet can be paired, with no contradiction, with absolutely anything in your wardrobe. This is why we have to launch with Olive Green being one of our favourites. The sunshine is echoed with the coupling of the Cote d’Azur sea blue – think sunshine, think life. We hope you love it too.
Striking yet sober….
