"iris + wool was born as a result of my passion for high-end clothing and wanting to promote the superior quality of wool produced in Australia"
My love of wool originates from being married to a Merino sheep producer in Burra, South Australia and so it was only natural that I should choose this fibre as the basis of my stylish knitwear range which comprises of sweaters and tops.
My label name iris + wool is a tribute to my mother who passed away when I was quite young. What I do recall of her was that she adored Irises, for this reason I have in part named my label ‘iris’ and ‘wool’ as an identity to the beautiful fibre.
With every IAW purchase you make, you know you will be making a difference to our farmers by buying Merino wool and also you will be supporting the McGrath Foundation! Every purchase you make we donate 5% of proceeds to the McGrath Foundation.
I do hope you enjoy wearing the iris + wool label as much as I have loved creating it for you.
