Ivory, silver, taupe and chocolate—each JS Design merino scarf is a potential antique of the future.

Softer than you can imagine, each garment is made from literally the finest naturally coloured merino wool available. And because of the influence of selective breeding and climatic conditions, the colours of our fleeces vary from year to year, ensuring each batch of scarves is totally unique. Nature loves variety and we do too.

Produced by artisans, these woven scarves are objects of lasting, authentic beauty. Even with repeated use they will hold their shape exceptionally well; creases simply disappear due to the elasticity of the unique fibre. And being dye-free with no chemical finishes, you can wear JS Design merino comfortably against your skin every day from autumn to spring.

Looking for an original New Zealand gift, souvenir or perhaps you simply want to add a unique touch of luxury to your wardrobe? Browse our range of functional but stylish woven and knitted scarves for men and women, and wraps for women and babies.
