OBR Merino are famous for their stunning NZ Merino capes and wraps in fashionable colours and styles and now they are selling their beautiful, light cosy blankets with unique New Zealand embroidery on them. These are proving a real hit as a travelling companion, for that extra layer of warmth without weight and are the perfect size at 150cm square. OBR Merino’s blankets can be rolled up to fit snugly into a handbag and can be brought out when the bus or plane’s air-conditioning has everyone else shivering.

NZ Merino is known as ‘nature’s performance fibre’ as it produces a natural, renewable fabric with excellent wrinkle recovery and is recyclable and bio degradable. The reason that these fine New Zealand Merino wools are so perfect for next to the skin garments, particularly for mums and babies, is they have such a low micron count, and in this very environmentally aware age, it is important to note that New Zealand Merino wool is a natural, renewable, sustainable and biodegradable product, making the OBR Merino blanket a natural accompaniment to any type of travel.

New Zealand Merino fabric carries the ECOME label, which means it is the best quality fabric possible. There are also growing indications that the use of NZ Merino is increasing rapidly worldwide, supported by strong consumer endorsement and objective evidence of performance. OBR Merino’s elegant capes and wraps, and now their blankets, are made from NZ Merino and it is important to note that they are fabricated to manage moisture, which is a factor in enhancing wearer comfort. Textiles that are effective at moisture management actively move excess moisture away from the body and transfer it to the external environment. This process of managing the environment between the skin and inner fabric surface enables heat and moisture to be buffered to acceptable levels, providing a micro-climate for the body.

This, plus its softness and flexibility and ease of laundering makes it one of the most popular and environmentally friendly fabrics in the world today. OBR Merino products are made from NZ Merino wool which is a natural, renewable, sustainable and biodegradable product. NZ Merino is known as ‘nature’s performance fibre’ as it produces a natural, renewable fabric with excellent wrinkle recovery and is recyclable and bio degradable, so that OBR Merino’s stylish and luxurious capes and wraps can be worn anywhere with comfort and in any weather and their blankets can be rolled up and taken anywhere in the world.
