  • Merino Wool

    Merino Wool is a very long staple, very fine wool from the Merino sheep. Merino sheep have been bred in Australia to produce extremely fine wool. Merino wool, particularly when twisted into a worsted yarn, is smooth to the skin. The fine fibres are soft, and the long staple gives fewer ends, further reducing any irritation from loose ends.

  • Driza-Bone
    Driza-Bone is an Australian icon in riding coats, much as Akubra is in hats, recognized not only in Australia but also throughout the world for quality, practicality and the Australian flair. The name Driza-Bone (Stryne for "Dry as a Bone") was registered in 1933, around the time the waxed cotton cloth was developed in Britain to replace the old cloth coated with linseed oil. We are pleased to offer this fine woolen sweater to complement the Driza-Bone Riding Coats, made in Australia from heavyweight 100% cotton cloth woven in India and proofed in Australia.
