The Finest Merino Knitwear
There’s Merino Wool and then there’s Merino Cashwool. We are proud that our knitwear utilises 100% Extra Fine Cashwool from Zegna Barrufa.
At this time of year, retaining sufficient warmth out on the links becomes a key requirement for golfers as they seek effective, yet stylish, solutions in their quest to keep body temperature at an optimal level without excess clothing or material hampering their freedom to swing. Among the garments from the OJ Sport Spring/Summer collection to perfectly resolve that dilemma are the classic Wyatt V-neck sweater and Rutger V-neck slipover, both woven from Cashwool ®, a 100% extrafine merino wool.
Cashwool ® is a stylish, unique and high-performing yarn crafted by Baruffa at its Borgosesia plant in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. This soft, luxurious wool was born out of intensive research in the late 1970s for a yarn combining aesthetic beauty with top-quality performance. The secret of Cashwool ® lies in the expert selection of the raw materials, with only the finest parts of the fleece selected to create a soft, fluffy and luxurious-feeling yarn.
Both Cashwool ® garments in OJ Sport’s Spring/Summer 16 range are perfect either as the ideal top layer on those milder spring days, or as the perfect mid-layer when the temperature or wind chill demands an additional outer layer over the top. Wyatt and Rutger offer classic OJ Sport styling with full fashion details around the collar, and additionally on the sleeve inserts on the Wyatt sweater.
Oscar Jacobson sources the yarn for its fine-knit sweaters from Italy’s Zegna Baruffa. Since it was founded in 1924, Zegna Baruffa has become a world-leading supplier of a very special merino wool.
It’s called Cashwool. The company’s most innovative yarn is produced from a special selection of extra-fine merino wool from Australia. Cashwool from Zegna Baruffa is synonymous with quality and is considered an innovator among the world’s leading yarn producers.
