Today as we have now rolled past the middle of the year and are well in to the beginning of the winter months I have been thinking of hibernating more and keeping cosy and warm. Winter attire is being pulled out of the depth of closets, frosts are creeping in and winds are picking up in their chill. At The Flock we are working from home, now an online retail shop continuing to provide the services you all know and hopefully love. This changes our playing field quite a bit to a new domain that we are learning rapidly all about. We have scheduled some time over the new few weeks to take photos of new season FROM merino knitwear that we already have stocked but now require the imagery to post the items on our lovely new website - provided the weather gives us enough natural light to compliment our schedule. This is something to look forward to, and in preparation we thought we should showcase the specific excellences of this part of our shop!
Our Merino, like all of our products, falls in line with our ethical standing in retail. Beyond the practicality and beauty of something so well crafted and warm, our merino is certified organic with G.O.T.S. approved natural dyes. G.O.T.S. - for anyone who does not know - stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. Articulated best by their own website, G.O.T.S. is “recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.” This makes this merino a high quality choice for those wanting to make a positive environmental impact with their fashion choices. FROM Knitwear (the supplier of our gorgeous merino) is a New Zealand brand. The garments are both designed and made here, keeping the market close to home.
Soft, cosy, elegant, there is more of our knitwear to come. Should you be looking for a beautiful, high quality, ethical and sustainable piece to enjoy for many years ahead, we encourage you to shop at our online retail store.

We hope you all stay bundled up and warm. Sending love - The Flock.
