Just when you thought you couldn't get anything better than merino for outdoor work or play... we bring you Cactus merino!

So what's so blimin good about it? In a nutshell:


The secret is in how the fibres are held together. Traditionally, fibres are twisted together for strength but in the process, the ends poke out, giving materials like wool their characteristic of the itchy Grandmas home knitted jersey feel.

Like wringing out a cloth, air pockets are squeezed out too. Cactus merino on the other hand, lays the fibres along the same orientation as the rest of the yarn, so fabrics feel more comfortable. Because more of the insulating air is retained, Cactus merino materials are warmer and loftier than ring spun materials.

Reviews is the best Merino TReview by Steve
I have long coveted Merino T shirts for all the benefits they offer. This Nuyarn is by far the most comfortable T shirt i have ever worn. I instantly feel better as soon as i put one on. I look forward to it. So far the material has proven to deliver on all the claims. I have worn on consecutive days for a couple of weeks while travelling. It always felt fresh. If it really is tougher and avoids the usual pin holes and rips i got used to with other merino..I'll be very happy. At 6ft and 80kg..The L was the perfect size for me. (Posted on 18/10/16)

I get a bit of a feel for the quality of a merino top by how many little woollen fibres work their way loose, then end up in my belly button.

It's weird but when I put on a new merino top and ear it for a day I end up with loads of belly button fluff.

This fancy new Nuyarn top got worn nearly every singe day this winter. I'm up on a roof installing solar panels all year round, this top got washed every few weeks kept the chill off. The top still feels like new, and the belly button is clear of the normal merino deposits.

Thanks! (Posted on 23/10/15)
