"iris + wool was born out of my passion for quality designer clothing and a genuine love for the superior quality of Australian merino wool."
My 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 my stylish designer knitwear range. Currently, this comprises of sweaters, tops, skirts - with a small Equestrian wear collection as I am an avid horse lover!
My brand iris + wool is a tribute to my mother who passed away when I was quite young. I do recall she adored Irises. It was only natural for me to combine the two loves in my life, ‘iris’ for my 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.
I do hope you enjoy wearing the iris + wool label as much as I have loved creating and designing it for you.
