We use ZQ Certified Merino. ZQ Merino farmers live by the ZQ Certified Program and are routinely audited by a 3rd party to ensure high standards. Most of the worlds ZQ Merino comes from New Zealand, where Merino sheep thrive on pastures 'free range' in the mountainous conditions of South Island. Healthy sheep naturally produce the best quality fibre, the ZQ Program requires growers to look after animals with five basic freedoms. Read more about our Merino products here.
