OUR NEW MERINO BLEND

We’ve been developing our own Finisterre blend of Merino since 2009; working closely with our suppliers, trying things out, product testing and listening to your feedback to make the softest, most comfortable base layers.

Over the last decade we’ve gone from a starting point of 100% Merino wool, and added polyamide to combat Merino’s natural tendency to lose shape and ladder. This blend worked well for us, but we wanted to evolve our Merino further and develop something using only natural fibres. Blending Merino with Tencel®, a soft and breathable fibre made from FSC certified eucalyptus wood pulp, we have created a performance fabric with all the benefits of Merino wool without the use of manmade fibres. Created from a fully sustainable and traceable supply chain, the blend is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable, and won’t pollute the marine environment.

Soft and great shape

I bought one of these for my husband and it fitted him so well that we bought another for a friend as a gift. The wool is soft, washes well and is great quality. My husband and friend both have quite large shoulders and upper arms, and the base layer tops fit them both well. I think we will end up buying more of these!

Great Top for layering or warmth out of the water

It does fit snuggly but it does exactly what you would want and expect.

Soft Merino great colour

Always need base layers right? So this one is a winner from the off - super soft merino knitted just the right cut to be snug but not tight, This is set to be my new favourite top to chuck on during mountain bike rides and after spending time spearfishing under the Cornish sea. I also really like the 'Rope' colour - something a bit different.
