Alice Norton, Marketing Executive: Smartwool Beanie


“A must pack on every trip away, whether it’s a rainy road trip or a week in the hills, my Smartwool Beanie is always in my bag. Keeps the head warm in NZ winter, and also gets points for style, too. I like the colour of mine, it’s super versatile and will look great up the ski field too. Everyone needs a good winter beanie, and this ones my pick for this season and beyond. The feel is so nice with the Merino wool blend, and the fit is super nice for me.”

Emma Subtil, ZQRX Project Coordinator: Honest Wolf Tote


“I bought my Honest Wolf tote because I wanted to support a farming family that I thought were doing something exciting and innovative in the strong wool space. I love my Honest Wolf tote because it is perfect for my overnight trips visiting growers around the country – the detail with the laptop sleeve, key hook and drink bottle holder are great and it’s the perfect size for my change of clothes, sponge bag and sports gear.”
