Making the best possible product requires using the best raw materials, and ultimately that means being able to trace those materials back to their source. Gostwyck Single Origin Merino is a softly stunning 15.5 micron merino that comes exclusively from Gostwyck in New South Wales, Australia. Gostwyck has been home to some of the world’s most premium sheep herds in the world for over two centuries, but it’s in the last two decades that they’ve doubled down to create some truly stunning product.

The best merino requires healthy and well cared for sheep, and that in turn requires a deep commitment to the environment of the land they graze on. Not only does this make for some of the most beautiful merino we’ve ever had the pleasure to wear, it also represents our goal for all the materials we use: a deeply traceable commitment to making the world a healthier place throughout the whole the supply chain. From the soil and water, to the air we breathe, and the conditions that we work in, it is only by assuring quality in all dimensions that we can build a truly healthy economic ecosystem.

Then, of course, there are ways that super high quality merino subtly amplifies the qualities of nature’s finest performance fiber. The natural thermoregulation and ability to stay dry to the touch even while absorbing moisture are there, as is the odor resistance. The biggest difference is in the handfeel, it is denser and softer almost like a new lusher material. We’ve been chasing merino quality for years now and this is the new gold standard and one we hope to see replicated (yet differentiated) in other single origin merinos down the line.

You can read all about Gostwyck on their website, but in the end the best way to experience it is to wear it. There is only a very limited amount of this stuff available every year and half of this supply was purchased by the excellent Diyang Merino Textile group in eastern China where they spin and knit it into a spectacular 15.5 micron, 205gsm jersey.
