Our merino comes from one of the world’s most ancient breeds of sheep, and one of the toughest. The Merino sheep lives in extreme environments (up to 35 degrees in summer and down to -25 degrees in winter) where a normal sheep would freeze. Their survival is due to the amazing wool this sheep produces, breathable in summer, yet warm and insulating in winter, while being incredibly soft and lightweight.
Merino wool is the world’s best fibre to produce garments from, as it has been tested and perfected by nature over hundreds of years, not dreamed up in a lab. Merino is also very environmentally friendly as it is a renewable, sustainable resource and do not require as much energy as man-made fibres to produce. Wool is also biodegradable which means if it is put in a land fill it is capable of decomposing, so will therefore avoid polluting our earth. We have also changed to compostable packaging for our garments and courier bags lessening our impact on the environment.
The wool used in an Ebony Merino is muelsing-free and can be traced to the farm for your peace of mind. We only use the best fibres so our garments are silky soft to wear, with no itch or scratch, even when worn right next to the skin.
