TOUGH LOVE
At just 3 years old, my grandfather Eli
was already on night duty. This meant
a two hour patrol of the family flock,
alert for roaming jackal in the freezing
Namaqualand nights.
A daunting task for a small boy,
but his parents were dirt poor migrant farmers... their sheep were all they had.
And the Namaqualand desert is not
for the faint-hearted.
PURE MERINO WOOL
Namaqua Merino wool is an extraordinary example of natural engineering. Because merino fibres are much finer than other wools, it ‘warms above its weight’ - being wonderfully snug, yet feather-light and itch-free on your skin.
ORGANIC LANOLIN
Lanolin - is a natural wax, secreted by the sebaceous glands of wool-bearing animals. It is Nature’s own coccoon... protecting both wool and skin from the extremes of climate.
