Our Premium Merino Range
The Fabric Store Online offers an unbeatable range of high-quality ethically produced merino fabrics, in a spectrum of beautiful colours
as well as heavy-weight knits, unique textures, stripes and merino sport knit blends. Read more about this amazing fabric below.
Merino is one of the worlds oldest breeds of sheep and produces an extremely versatile wool. The merino wool is designed to protect the sheep from the harsh elements they thrive in, all the while maintaining a very fine micron (diameter of the fibre), making it the softest yet hard wearing sheep wool. The fabric itself is hypoallergenic, flame resistant, breathable and moisture wicking making it suitable for so many uses and all seasons. Merino fibre is a fully renewable resource which is recyclable and 100% biodegradable at the end of its life cycle.
Our Merino is sourced from a New Zealand based company who are Bluesign® Systems Partners and provide a MAPP guarantee on our full range. The MAPP guarantee ensures environmental, economic sustainability & animal welfare. MAPP merino is produced in 'free range' farming systems which are animal and environmentally friendly, and produce superb quality merino. A strict no mulesing policy is followed, and the well-being of the sheep is a high priority. Strict guidelines are followed throughout the entire manufacturing process to ensure environmental responsibility and the use of sustainable processes.
Here at The Fabric Store Online 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. We are continuously updating our merino selection which ranges from super soft merino jerseys in beautiful colours from our very own ethically produced premium range to heavy weight knits with amazing textures. We have a small (but growing) selection of 150gsm lightweight jerseys perfect for summer or under layers and a range of merino blends (tencel,nylon, lycra) which make for great active and sportswear fabrics.
Our Premium Merino Range is available to purchase online and in stores.
