Tui Fine Merino Rib Turtle - Black


This turtleneck will be a staple in your winter wardrobe. Extremely soft, the elastic ribbing keeps the neck warm with a snug fit. It has a simple and sophisticated design that can be worn as a single piece or as innerwear. It's so light and soft you'll forget you're wearing it. 

All the pieces in the Tui collection are made using lightweight rib knit 100% merino wool. Merino is sometimes known as ‘Summer wool’. Merino is naturally absorbent and deodorising, making it perfect for any season. Whether it’s the humidity of the rainy season, sweaty summer days or the sudden blast of cold from an air-conditioned room, merino wool adapts to sudden changes in the environment to help the body stay comfortable throughout the year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

    ZQ Merino wool producers are directly connected to brands selling Merino wool products to the markets through long-term contracts. This kind of contract also means that supply chains are fully traceable, from farmer to final product. ZQ Merino wool farmers understand the needs of the end-user and make sure they can produce wool in a sustainable manner for years to come.

    In the past, it was impossible for sheep farmers to know where wool sold at auction ended up, and what kind of products it was used in. Instead of selling in an auction, ZQ Merino wool is sold through a direct deal between the producers and the final product manufacturers. This means farmers can follow their wool on its journey right from sheep to the final product.

    YARN nz

    Based in Aotearoa, YARN was founded by Yoko Shimoyama who moved to NZ from Japan in 2011. YARN is a comfortable merino wool innerwear label committed to creating positive change. They've made a conscious decision to only use renewable & sustainable fibres and ethical manufacturing. YARN partner with farms that respect animal welfare and make sure that they can trace every material they use back to its original source.

    We view merino as a treasure from Aotearoa's beautiful natural world and their hope is to share that beauty with you. YARN's goal is to deliver collections that are utilitarian, minimal and convey an understated sense of femininity. 

    YARN work in harmony with the Maori concept of ‘kaitiaki’ in which there is no natural hierarchy, and humans are just one of many natural elements that make up a much larger, global family. Yarn's ZQ Merino wool supplier also embraces this concept. Their wool is produced in accordance with the highest level of environmental standards and they take great care to protect the skies, the sea and the Earth.
