McIntyre is a unique knitwear brand, founded by Ned and Raquel, that blends the comfort and sustainability of Australian Merino wool with modern, personal style. The founders’ experience living on a sheep farm ignited their passion for Merino wool, leading to the creation of McIntyre. Their products are a testament to their belief in the superiority of natural fibers, both for their environmental benefits and their unparalleled comfort.
Their commitment to sustainability is evident in their practices:
- Australian Merino Wool: All McIntyre garments are made from sustainably grown Australian Merino wool, ensuring a natural, biodegradable product.
- Eco-Friendly Packaging: They use biodegradable bags for packaging, with 80% of items already adopting this practice. Online orders are shipped in compostable satchels or recyclable cardboard boxes.
- Conscious Manufacturing: McIntyre knits their garments in Australia and Vietnam, collaborating with factories committed to sustainable practices. They also ensure that all yarns are OEKOTex 100 certified, free from harmful chemicals in the dyeing process.
- Functional and Comfortable: Merino wool is known for its ability to regulate temperature, making it warm in cold conditions and cool in hot weather. It’s also static-resistant and naturally wrinkle-resistant, making it a practical choice for everyday wear.
- Easy Maintenance: The garments are designed to be machine washable and naturally resist wrinkles, simplifying care and maintenance.
McIntyre stands out for its fusion of style, comfort, and commitment to environmental sustainability, offering consumers a responsible choice in fashion.
