The Empress Crew Neck is designed and made in New Zealand from 100% traceable New Zealand merino. Ergonomically designed for active comfort it is cut to move with the natural stretch of the Merino fibers. Suitable for all activities from hiking, climbing, winter sports to day-to-day leisure.
Edmund Hillary’s unique knit maximizes the wool's natural temperature regulating properties using traceable 17.7-micron Merino. This provides a soft and comfortable feel, whilst providing warmth and moisture management.
Our Merino can absorb 40% of its weight in water and still retain all its thermal properties.
