This year, The Woolmark Company demonstrated the versatility of Merino wool through its extensive and novel use opportunities. Innovations can be introduced into Merino wool fabrics at any stage in the manufacturing process to create versatile, cutting edge and clever alternative to other fibres. Each innovation brought to life the natural properties of Merino wool, such as stain resistant, odour resistance, moisture wicking and breathability.
