Now Even SofterSheep farming has been crucial in the development of New Zealand’s economy and for most of our history has been our primary industry. British navigator James Cook brought sheep to our fair isles in 1773 and, as recently 1982, we had 22 sheep per person.
Sheep’s wool clothed our ancestors but, with modern techniques, the wool of today can add softness and elasticity to the attributes of this fantastic fibre. Lambswool in particular comes from the first shearing of a sheep, when it is around seven months old. It needs minimal processing to produce a warm, comfortable and durable garment.
HIGH QUALITY WOOL
At Wild South we source only high quality, wool fabrics for our garments - because what you put against your skin really matters to us. From the sheep’s back to yours - using our New Zealand heritage.
