Merino wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable, and is the most recycled apparel fibre in the world.

A luxuriously soft fibre, Australian Merino is the product of nature. Careful environmental stewardship, and over 180 years of knowledge and experience. Since 1829, Australian merino wool growers have consistently produced some of the world’s finest merino wool, admired for it’s unique natural qualities.

Australia provides the ideal conditions for growing luxury fine merino wool. Happy sheep = good wool.

We source the yarn for our Tuff Mongrel heavy duty socks from Schoeller Spinning Group – in Germany. The Climawool they produce is the best we have found for replicating the qualities of Pure Wool but also adding a lightness and longevity making this a true high performance yarn. Schoeller’s hard won G.O.T.S and Blue Sign certification demonstrates their commitment to getting it right for the planet too.

We are keen recyclers and do our best to recycle as much waste as possible.  Recycling our cardboard boxes, plastic bags and re-using them, where possible to send out other deliveries.

Using compostable post bags and satchels, when sending out your Mongrel orders.  We are also able to provide you with off-cuts of wool for yarning and darning of your Mongrel Socks, all you need to do is ask....
