Our Premium Merino Range

1/3 Our Merino

Merino is one of the world’s oldest breeds of sheep, producing an extremely soft and versatile wool. Merino is breathable, and moisture wicking, making it suitable for all seasons and a variety of uses. Here at The Fabric Store we love merino for so many reasons, especially its versatility and hypoallergenic properties, making it the perfect choice for babies and anyone with sensitive skin. Our Premium 195gsm Merino jersey range includes a spectrum of over 25 beautiful exclusive colours, which we refine and add to regularly.

2/3 Origin

We are very proud to source our Premium 195gsm Merino from a long established New Zealand based company, with whom we have a long and trusting relationship. Sadly, over recent years the very last New Zealand-based mills have closed down, forcing our supplier to seek an offshore solution for the knitting of our Premium Merino products. Although we were sad to see this production moved offshore, we were careful to ensure the merino fabrics produced by our supplier’s new Vietnam-based mill have a MAPP guarantee. MAPP ensures environmental and economic sustainability, as well as animal welfare. The mill is also a Bluesign System Partner, which ensures elimination of harmful substances from the manufacture and dying process, and controls standards for environmentally friendly fabric production.

3/3 Uses

Our Premium Merino jersey has so many uses! We love to use it for everything from sportswear and outdoor insulating garments, clothes and accessories for babies and children, to a range of fashion garments such as dresses, tops and layering pieces. We have loads of fabulous ideas for Merino over on the blog, including pattern reviews, DIY projects and fabric guides. Check out the blog here.
