We are continually striving for zero waste!
Underpinning our brand is a strong desire to be sustainable and ethical. One of our practices is making use of all the fabric when we are producing the Love Merino garments. Our scarves and wraps are made on a Flat bed machine so each product is made to size with no wastage.
With our jersey merino fabric that is knitted on a circular knitting machine, the Love Merino garments are cut and finished by our very talented seamstress Rachel right here in Wellington. Rachel is vigilant in making sure any spare merino fabric is used up as beanies, face masks or headbands. We are continually striving to aim for zero waste!
