Do You Love Me?

 

Our Merino Rib Styles are the perfect foundation for you winter wardrobe and ideal trans-seasonal pieces.

If you have some already, we're sure you that you currently have them on high rotation!

With this in mind, we've got some excellent tips on how to care for your Merinos, how to show them some love and extend the life of these beautiful pieces.

The Fabric                                                                                                                                                                                                          Our styles are made from 100% Superfine Australian Merino Wool, knitted in one of the last knitting mills in Australia, right here in Melbourne.  The fine rib can be delicate so please be cautious with jewellery and rough surfaces and also friction created from handbags or pants and jeans.  The natural properties of this fabric make it odour resistant and antibacterial so these pieces do not have to be washed as often.

Washing Instructions 

We recommend a hand or gentle machine wash in cold water with a speciality wool wash Wash inside out and if popping in the machine, use a lingerie bag to also reduce stress and pilling.  Wash with like-minded colours.

It's best to avoid soaking agents as they can damage the merino fibres plus avoid fabricsofteners as they can coat the merino fibres which weakens their natural ability to control temperature and moisture. Dry flat (over a drying rack) in the shade.

Our Signature Raw Edge

Our Merino Funnel Neck Skivvy features a raw edge on the neck and our Merino Rib Tee features a raw edge sleeve. In time, these can fray or run depending on wear and care. Threads and edges can be gently trimmed to keep a clean line.

Storing 

 Store folded with lavender or cedar balls to reduce the risk of moth holes.

 

We lovingly make our Merino styles in our Ethical Clothing Australia certified factory located in Melbourne. They are sewn by one of our incredible machinists that have over 20 years industry experience.

Portraits by Kez Hughes

Georgina Cue, Living Room (detail) 2016. Oil on linen 2020 by Kez Hughes

Kez Hughes graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts and Music in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) Painting.  In the same year, Kez co-founded Caves a not for profit gallery located in the Nicholas Building with artist Storm Gold. 

Nell, I AM mouth MAGIC, 2017, Station Gallery.  Oil on linen 2020 by Kez Hughes

Kez uses her incredible skill as a realist painter and her curatorial eye to capture works of art she admires by other artists in her own paintings. Both cheeky and genius, they are works of works, a love letter to the artist from an artist. 

Her homage to Georgina Cue's 'Living Room' (top) is a painting of a section of the original photographic work that was presented on archival ink jet print on rag paper.

Kez has captured  Nell's earthenware and wooden stool installation piece also in an oil painting.

These two paintings are part of her current solo exhibition called Portraits showing at Lon Gallery. Click here for more information and a virtual tour.
