iris + wool was born as a result of designer, Emily Rigg's, passion for high-end clothing and wanting to promote the superior quality of wool produced in Australia.
Her love of wool originates from being married to a Merino sheep producer in Burra, South Australia and so it was only natural for her to choose this fibre as the basis of her stylish knitwear range, which comprises of jumpers and tops.
The label name iris + wool is a tribute to her mother who passed away when Emily was quite young. She recalled her mother's love for irises and for this reason partly named the label ‘iris’. 'Wool’ is in homage to the beautiful fibre.
Note: This business proudly manufactures 100% in Australia.
