Meet The 2020 Merino Collection

Say hello to The 2020 Merino Collection. Knit with a blend of Rothy’s signature thread and soft merino wool, these plush styles come in beautiful fall-inspired shades to sweep you straight into the season. And with a brand new boot, it’s time to cue the coziness.

The Merino Collection is knit with a proprietary blend of Rothy’s signature thread (which is spun from plastic water bottles) and premium merino wool. Luxe, cozy and natural, we like to think of merino as mother nature’s perfect material. Combined with our signature thread, the styles in this collection are soft and sustainable, while just as washable and durable as your favorite Rothy’s. We’re proud of this collection—from how it looks and feels to the way it is made.

This year’s collection is crafted with both repurposed and new wool from Tollegno 1900, supplemented with ethically sourced wool from our local supplier in China. Tollegno 1900 is the incredible textile partner we worked with last year, known for superb craftsmanship and the highest environmental and animal welfare standards. By partially using the leftover Tollegno wool in our factory, we were able to repurpose existing resources and limit the amount of new material needed. The remainder of the wool used in this year’s Merino Collection comes from our local supplier in China, which sources their merino wool from organic, humane farms in New Zealand and Australia.

Responsible manufacturing and thoughtful craftsmanship are key to all things we make—and this collection is no different. So go ahead and warm right up in our softest staples yet.
