About Merino Country
From the Heart of the Outback..100% Australian Merino….Naturally!
Merino Country is our company name and the original brand of our classic merino range of clothing.
An extension of the family merino wool enterprise, Merino Country was established in 1993 to vertically integrate the supply and production chain from the raw fleece through to the end product. The business was originally based on "Clareborough Station", outside of Richmond in North West Queensland but is now based between Brisbane & the Gold Coast.
We work with Australian woolgrowers, processors and manufacturers and have control of specifications of the raw wool, yarn types, fabric construction, design and manufacturing of garments with all of our garment production sewn in-house in our own factory in Queensland. Our fabrics are knitted and dyed in Australia as well!
Merino Country has developed a new lightweight, easy-care merino wool jersey fabric which provides comfort, performance & durability. It is ideal for hot and cold climates and comes in a great range of products from underwear to thermals, travel garments, outdoor adventure wear and importantly everyday clothing.
Merino Country is committed to maintaining a high quality standard in both garments and fabrics and in developing new merino wool products to meet our customers' needs. Merino Country is a licensed user of the Australian Made trademark and has been accredited to Ethical Clothing Australia, with all fabric processed in Australia and garments produced in-house.
Our fabric is tested to Australian Defence Standards using NATA (National Australian Testing Authority) tests conforming to ISO standards. Merino Country has it’s own in-house Quality Assurance System in order to maintain strict quality control over all products. Each product is produced under the strict guidelines issued by the Merino Country management and is checked regularly to ensure protocols are being followed and adhered to.
By having stocks of yarn and fabric in production; working closely with our fabric processors and with our own in-house manufacturing facilities we are able to offer Quick Response Solutions to customers and respond efficiently to changing markets.
Merino Country supplies merino products to the Australian & New Zealand Defence Forces and the Victoria Police. We also supply directly to retail customers via mail-order, many who utilise our product for the workplace in industrial jobs including mining, security & safety, defence, building and transport industries along with a strong market in travel & leisure garments.
We also work closely with skin specialists and breast cancer groups and our 100% merino underwear and outerwear helps relieve skin conditions, chaffing and chemo burns.
