THE GIFT OF KINGS®

Australia and New Zealand

The Gift of Kings® is an incredible fine wool, and it comes solely from specially selected flocks of merino sheep. Hailing from the meadows of Australia and New Zealand, it reaches Italy to be processed with exceptional care and expertise.

The world's most precious wool

The Gift of Kings® wool was named after the Spanish royal family's practice of gifting pairs of merino sheep to other sovereigns to honor relationships and seal alliances. This outstanding wool has an impressively fine diameter on average. Pure, gleaming white in color, its crimped structure, natural stretch, and supreme softness against the skin are complemented by its ability to wick away moisture and absorb excess heat. All these properties make The Gift of Kings® merino wool a unique fiber.
