"iris + wool was born out of Emily Riggs' passion for quality designer clothing and a genuine love for the superior quality of Australian merino wool."
Emily Riggs' love of merino wool increased after marrying a Merino Sheep Producer in Burra, South Australia and being exposed to it everyday. It was only natural to choose this versatile fibre as the basis of Emily Riggs stylish designer knitwear range. Currently, this comprises of sweaters, tops, skirts - with a small Equestrian wear collection as Emily Riggs is an avid horse lover!
Emily Riggs brand iris + wool is a tribute to Emily's mother who passed away when she was quite young. Emily Riggs does recall she adored Irises. It was only natural for Emily Riggs to combine the two loves in her life, ‘iris’ for her mother and ‘wool’ as an identity for the beautiful fibre.
With every iris + wool purchase made, you will be making a difference to many farmers who produce Merino wool and also supporting the McGrath Foundation! For every purchase 5% of proceeds donated to the McGrath Foundation.
Emily hopes you enjoy wearing the iris + wool label as much as she loved creating and designing it for you.
Cheers and Love,
