It's official - July = Sweater Weather down in the Southern Hemisphere and as we all will be staying put for the Winter we may as well dress right and enjoy it! As people are starting to mourn their missed holidays to warmer climates we wanted to cheer you up and say thank you for supporting New Zealand made with 25% off storewide and free shipping!
Winter isn't all bad - just think, cosy fires, mulled wine and snug knitwear... Wrapped up in layers of cashmere sweaters, alpaca scarves and merinosilk hats... Personally, I started enjoying Winter a whole lot more when I began dressing smarter - that is ditching the synthetic fabrics and coarse wool for fine, natural knits that intelligently trap the warmth while letting the skin breath and body move as it should.
We want to thank everyone for supporting New Zealand made fashion by offering this special Winter deal - it's our best one yet! As we have mentioned previously on a blog, discounting for us is harder than it is for the fast-fashion players as we have more processes done by hand (like the linking of necklines), our fibres are carefully and consciously sourced and thus, come at a higher cost and we ensure everyone involved in the production is in a fair environment both in workspace and wage.
Enjoy your own piece of Kapeka and thanks for consciously choosing.
We have put together a little list to give you some inspiration for your Winter wardrobe.
Merino Tops and Base Layers - The Ultimate Second Skin
Our Merino tops base layers have evolved over time to deliver innovative, technical fabrics that are natural, hard-wearing and comfortable. Long-gone are the days of prickly, itchy thermals - these glide on and are silky on the skin. We use Extra-fine New Zealand Merino spun tight and strong for ultimate durability. Available in Men's and Women's in tops with a variety of necklines and leggings/long johns.
Designed to give a layer of warmth without weighing you down - you won't even notice it. Dries quickly, even when wet making it perfect for outdoor activities.
Our Active Merino Hoodie is great for wearing day to day whether you are out and about amongst the city or hitting the snowy slopes.
Winter Accessories - The Secret To Never Getting Cold!
Accessories may be small but they pack a punch when trying to keep warm - especially if they are crafted right and made from natural fibre blends. Heat will escape quickly when skin is exposed to the air so think about your neck and face, hands, head and feet; keep these covered with warm, insulating fibres that won't prickle the skin is the key to keeping warm this Winter.
Our Merinosilk Stripe Scarf - a popular classic. It comes in two colour ways - Petal and Sky. Sky is more masculine and pairs perfectly when wearing blueish tones and jeans.
Not just any gloves, our classic Merinosilk Gloves will take the bite out of any cold. Available in 10 different colours and a variety of sizes - there's something for everyone. Super hard-wearing, lightweight and all natural - your hands will thank you.
Need to use your fingers? No problem - our Merinosilk River Wrist Warmers fit the ticket. Slip your hands into these to keep your hands toasty while stilling able to do what you need to do. (Psst. We have these in Mahana Cashmere too!)
