I love supporting Australian fashion retailers especially during Wool week Australia (May 13-21),which means I’m getting my wool on with pieces I selected from my local Westfield which has pieces for every budget.
You can shop this whole look from Westfield which gives you more time for snuggling in your new winter gear and enjoying those winter comforts like a steaming hot chocolate from kokoblack when you need a break in between stocking up on those must have pieces.
Now is the time to plan your winter wardrobe not out of necessity but desire…
Merino Wool comes from the Merino sheep that originated from Spain introduced into Australia around the turn of the 18th century.
What makes the Merino Wool so awesome is its very fine fibers, making it the softest wool in the world.The wool is durable and you’ll be hard pressed to stretch or misshape these woolly garments.On top of that it closely mimics human hair with a keratin component making it bio degradable and good for the earth.

Base layer– of lightweight merino wool Merino will regulate your body temperature, insulating you from the cold and also wicking away moisture and heat when you sweat.
Mid layer– to trap heat and keep you warm
Outer layer-choose a waterproof outer layer for protection against the elements.
