Why blend these fibers?

Blends of superwash merino and nylon are extremely popular due to their softness, durability and affordability. Creating this blend is in keeping with our goal to always strive to push the limits and seek the beauty of perfecting the simplest things. There’s a lot of variability in the quality of superwash merino, in terms of both the wool itself and the sustainability of how its made.
