Merinomink™

Sustainability isn't just a buzzword with Merinomink

With Merinomink New Zealand, sustainability is woven into the very fabric of every product - quite literally. For over 30 years, this company has been committed to crafting premium knitwear that looks exquisite and honours our planet. 

With a holistic approach to sustainable design, Merinomink strives for progress, not perfection, knowing that even small changes can make a big impact.

A conscious selection of natural fibres and fabrics 

Each Merinomink piece is thoughtfully designed for maximum utility and minimal waste, ensuring that every garment is as environmentally friendly as it is beautiful. But sustainability extends beyond materials — it's also about fostering a culture of care and support for its amazing makers.

In Merinomink's Christchurch workrooms, their dedicated team enjoys a nurturing and inclusive environment, complete with sunshine breaks, outdoor qi gong classes, and regular gatherings over morning tea or lunch. At Danny's Knitwear, we believe that happy and fulfilled employees create garments infused with positive energy and compassion, which is why we proudly add Merinomink to our list of suppliers.

Just one collection per year

Merinomink only releases one collection per year, along with a few small, meaningful in-season capsules. Each design is crafted to endure wear and transcend trends. Merinomink garments are to be cherished for years and passed down through generations as treasured heirlooms. And by keeping production local, the brand supports its community and reduces its carbon footprint, minimising transport emissions.

Masters at minimising waste

Merinomink ensure that even the smallest offcuts are put to good use. Whether they're upcycled into cozy patchwork blankets or recycled into home insulation - nothing goes to waste.

Transparency is also key to the Merinomink ethos. Knowing what's behind a label — where it was made, what it's made of, and who made it - is important. All Merinomink knitwear is made in-house by the talented team in Christchurch. These are the individuals who make it all possible, supporting sustainable practices and helping make a positive impact in the world.

Central to Merinomink's commitment to sustainability is its partnership with ZQ Merino, an accreditation program that ensures the highest standards of animal welfare, environmental stewardship, and social responsibility. These Merino suppliers adhere to a strict no-mulesing policy, prioritising the health and welfare of the sheep.

An exclusive blend of fine merino wool, luxurious brushtail possum fibre, and mulberry silk

Add a touch of angora, and you will have garments that are as luxurious as they are sustainable. This blend offers warmth without weight, pill resistance, and natural antimicrobial properties, ensuring that your Merinomink knitwear remains beautiful and comfortable for years to come.

Sustainability isn't just about better products — it's about a better planet. By utilising brushtail possum fibre, Merinomink help minimise the impact on native flora and fauna without resorting to harmful chemicals. When these garments reach the end of their lifecycle, they naturally decompose, releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
