We select only the finest Merino wool fibres and blend them with other luxurious materials such as cashmere and silk. To help you enjoy your beautiful knitwear for years to come, we've created a comprehensive care guide.

Our Fibres

“We only use natural fibres.” 

Through meticulous selection and collaboration with premier yarn makers in New Zealand, we passionately curate and create the finest yarns available, ensuring unparalleled quality and craftsmanship. 

We enhance our knitwear yarns with additional natural fibres, such as organic cotton and premium linens, celebrating the marvels of nature to create the finest quality garments just for you. 

Experience the lasting comfort that our knits provide, knowing that you've chosen a garment that embodies quality, sustainability, and everlasting style. It's more than just a knit—it's a legacy that will accompany you on countless adventures and through life's little moments. 

When you invest in a Perriam knit, you're not just purchasing a jumper—you're acquiring a timeless treasure that will hold a special place in your heart and wardrobe for years to come. Our knits are crafted with an unwavering dedication to quality, ensuring that they become cherished pieces in your wardrobe, destined to be passed down through generations.

Washing & Drying

We want your beautiful Perriam knitwear to stay in perfect condition, so we ask you to follow our care instructions. When washing and drying your knitwear, make sure you follow these guidelines and handle with care. By adhering to our care guide, you'll enjoy an amazing-looking garment for life.

It's important to use an approved liquid wool detergent because common laundry powders contain whiteners, which act like bleach and can hole and ladder your merino piece. We recommend using our wool wash, specifically created for us by Real World and tested on our knitwear. 

Do not soak. And do not bleach or use stain removers or nappy cleansing agents.

To get rid of excess water, don’t wring. Instead, roll your garment up in a towel and gently press to absorb the water. 

Dry on a line in the shade or flat on the ground (cream-coloured merino items are susceptible to yellowing if exposed to direct sunlight). 

Do not tumble dry. 

Allow for 5% shrinkage.


Our yarn is spun from one of the finest microns in New Zealand, which is what gives each Perriam piece that ultra-soft feel. This does mean that fibres migrate to the surface, resulting in pilling or bobbling. But rather than being an indication of low quality, pilling occurs because of the superior softness of our fibres. 

As such, we recommend getting yourself a de-pilling machine or a Sweater Stone, which will have your garments looking as good as new in minutes. 

We also suggest washing your merino as little as possible – a spot clean and an air out is best for our yarn. And because pilling tends to occur due to friction, try to minimise contact with abrasive surfaces (we know this is harder for little ones). 

Moths & Storage

Moths love woollen items. And because they lay lots of eggs that hatch in a short space of time, it doesn’t take long for them to eat away at your garments. 

If you’ve already spotted a lot of tiny holes in a piece, freeze it to kill the larvae. Then re-wash it and thoroughly clean your wardrobe. 

We ask that you use the calico bag provided with every knitwear purchase to store your items. Make sure to tie it tightly to keep moths out. We also include a bag of lavender, which moths hate and is an excellent deterrent. Place the lavender bag inside the calico bag with your knitwear, or if you prefer to hang your knitwear, hook the tie through the coat hanger. This will keep moths at bay and leave your garments smelling lovely.
