Reinventing a Kiwi Classic

We are reviving New Zealand's miracle fibre with our new ‘Strong Wool’ range from Brass Monkeys, which combines the timeless quality and durability of strong wool with a modern-soft touch.

Nature's Perfect Blend

Strong Wool range is made of three natural fibres: strong wool, merino wool, and Lyocell. It is durable, warm, breathable, odour-resistant, and sustainable. It is the perfect jacket for any occasion and any weather.

Durable and Warm

Made with a durable strong wool outer layer that protects against wear and tear and keeps you warm. The inner layer is made of merino wool, which is soft, cozy, and stretchy. Together, they help you stay comfortable by adjusting to your body temperature.

Eco-Friendly, Made with 100% Natural Fibres

• 50% Strong Wool exterior, 32 microns

• 35% Merino Wool inner layer, 19 microns

• 15% Lyocell wood pulp-based fibre for binding

Handmade in New Zealand

Wool is not just a fabric, it’s our culture. Our products are ethically made in New Zealand with quality and care by local experts. Join thousands of Kiwis who love our products and experience for yourself.

FAQs

What percentage of this range is made from New Zealand Strong Wool?

50%, the full product consists of the following:

50% Strong Wool exterior, 32 microns
35% Merino Wool inner layer, 19.5 microns
15% Lyocell wood pulp-based fibre for binding

Where and how is your Strong Wool sourced?

Our Strong Wool is responsibly sourced from the renowned Cape Campbell farm located in the picturesque region of Marlborough, New Zealand. We are committed to ethical practices and ensure that our farmers are compensated fairly. By paying an ethical rate, we support the farmers’ dedication to producing high-quality Strong Wool, while also fostering sustainable farming practices.

How can I find the sizing for these products?

Sizing can be found on the product pages or you can find it here: Strong Wool Sizing Guide

Strong Wool is quite coarse, is this range?

Strong Wool is naturally coarse. It's this feature which makes it durable and hardwearing. And while it can feel a bit prickly at times, it won’t be as itchy as that old blanket you remember as a kid, thanks to an added merino ‘comfort’ layer that helps give a smooth feeling against the skin.

What colours are available?

At this time, we offer two colours; Storm Grey and All Black. We're always interested in hearing from people what colours they would like to see added to our range. Got something in mind? Email us at customer_support@smartmerino.com
