Take the many spectacular benefits of superfine merino and add to that the magical properties of silk and you have a next to skin layer that’s hard to beat.
For centuries, silk has been the go-to luxury fabric for next to skin. In addition to being silky soft and smooth, it is also antimicrobial and an effective insulator. Silk is an animal protein extracted from the cocoon of the silkworm and exhibits many of the same characteristics as wool – moisture wicking, temperature regulating and breathable. The anti-inflammatory properties make it ideal for sensitive skin issues like rashes on baby skin and eczema. The silk also adds extra strength, plus a beautiful sheen and lustre.
Silk is grown without pesticides and is produced using the same low-impact, ancient methods developed over 5000 years ago.
Nui Merino Silk is a blend of 70% GOTS organic merino wool and 30% Mulberry Silk. The yarn we use is GOTS, Bluesign and Okeo-Tex certified. Instead of water and chemicals used in the traditional Superwash process, this yarn has been treated with a Plasma treatment that uses air and renewable electricity to modify the individual wool fibres, making our garments machine washable.
Our merino silk garments are a dream to wear, day or night.
