New Zealand Merino wool
John Smedley's extra-fine New Zealand Merino wool is specially bred by selected wool growers on the alpine pastures of the South Island. It's a soft, sumptuous yarn that's naturally warm, comfortable and easy to maintain. In 1995 we began a unique sourcing programme with a specially selected number of wool growers in New Zealand which we still maintain today. It means we can trace our knitwear and control its provenance.
We also have Zque accreditation which guarantees that we have fair and ethical practices in the way we work with our suppliers and the way they treat their sheep, as well as the quality of our wool.
