In the years when Australia rode on the sheep's back, glamorous women the world over were dressed in merino wool. Merino wool was a sign of quality, style and class. For weekends in the country or for strolling down Queen St, polished ladies knew all any outfit needed was wool and a string of pearls.
One such lady was Lady Kate Merriman, wife of a sheep baron, one of the women behind the wool industry.
Sixty years later, it is hard to find chic clothing with the superior feel of a natural fibre. And so, following in the well-heeled footsteps of the Lady herself, we decided to create our own. Lady Kate aims to provide today's women with the soft, breathable comfort of pure Australian merino, in modern and stylish designs.
If our namesake were still here, we think she'd approve.
