Originally we successfully introduced the Jan Merino: the unique sweater made of Dutch wool. The first limited edition was received very enthusiastically. That is why Joe Merino & the Knitwit Stable now comes with the Jan Merino II. In fact, the collection has been expanded with a new model - a cool sailor sweater with zipper - and an extra color: a beautiful mixed dark grey. And good news, through a stricter wool selection it has also become slightly softer.
A sweater made of Dutch wool is more remarkable than you think. Despite the fact that there are more than enough sheep in the Netherlands, little has been done with their wool since the disappearance of the wool industry. Most of the wool ends up in China. We thought that was a shame, which is why we developed the Jan Merino in collaboration with Joe Merino.
Jan Merino is a cool sweater, made of 80% Dutch sheep wool supplemented with 20% wool from Dutch alpacas for extra softness. The sweater is knitted in the Netherlands, is completely natural, breathable and 100% biodegradable.
Jan Merino is available with a round neck and as a skipper's sweater with a cool zipper. In blue and grey and in sizes M to XXL. The edition is again very limited. So be quick, because gone = gone.
Joe Merino introduces a unique limited edition sweater made of Dutch wool: the Jan Merino. We developed and produced this sweater in collaboration with Joe Merino. You can order it via Joemerino.com.
Since the late 1980s, Dutch wool is no longer used in the fashion industry. Due to the arrival of the so-called Fast Fashion, introduction of synthetics and the increasingly strict environmental requirements, it was no longer possible for Dutch farmers to supply wool in a profitable way, so that the wool industry from the Netherlands has virtually disappeared. The Knitwit Stable is committed to making sustainable processing and production of wool in the Netherlands possible, little by little. After all, wool is a strong, easy to recycle and biodegradable material.
With the introduction of the Jan Merino, Joe Merino supports the mission of The Knitwit Stable. Joe Merino is constantly working to make its production more sustainable in the field of animal welfare, working conditions, reducing the use of water and chemicals, transport, etc. In addition, Joe Merino is a strong advocate of slow fashion and reminds consumers of the importance of a conscious choice for quality and good maintenance so that the products last a long time and can be worn a lot. With the introduction of Jan Merino, Joe Merino takes another step in this process.
