Benefits of Mountainsilk™ ProcycleWhat is Zque Merino?
Zque is an accreditation program that ensures all Merino in Untouched World™ garments is grown to specified animal welfare, environmental, social and economic standards. Our Merino suppliers all adhere to strict no-mulesing policy as part of ensuring the health and welfare of the sheep. Growers follow guidelines governing soil conservation and the use and development of land, air and water resources.
New Zealand’s unique high country environment and farming systems produce Merino fibre renowned for its range of attributes, which give Untouched World™ Merino garments their distinctive lightness and smoothness to touch. In New Zealand, Merino sheep graze on pasture in ‘free range’ conditions throughout the year. The free range style of farming system suits both the high country environment (alpine and sub-alpine grassland) and the hardy Merino breed.
Merino producers have developed the necessary stockmanship, often over many generations, to ensure the health and welfare of their sheep and that the productive capacity of their farms is maintained or enhanced, rather than degraded, over time. Merino sheep are farmed in some of the most beautiful alpine and sub alpine grassland areas. To ensure they stay this way for future generations, farmers have developed systems that result in the production of high quality Merino fibre without damage to the environment.
The sustainability of farming is closely linked with the social and economic welfare of farmers, farm workers and communities. The majority of zque Merino fibre is produced in the South Island’s high country where farmers and their local communities have developed a distinctive culture of robustness and resilience, while continuing careful stewardship of the land. Zque provides a transparent traceability scheme that allows us to identify and track zque fibre back to the farm. This ensures the desired fibre quality is maintained, and that product and system integrity is not compromised.
