Dormeuil are known the world over for spinning some of the most precious fibres on the planet. Guanashina®, Qiviuk and Extreme Vicuña are just a few of the most magnificent limited edition cloths conceived by Dormeuil.
Dormeuil select wool yarns from the very best merino wool farms in Australia and New Zealand. Depending on the seasonality of each particular region, the merino wool predominately is purchased from farms in New England in Northern New South Wales and Tasmania. Some of the more luxurious wools are sourced from New Zealand, hailing from Marlborough country for the most part. From these merino fibres, only the longest are selected. A characteristic resulting from this selection process results in a better lustre in the final weave, achieving a strong light reflection. When using shorter fibres to create yarns, there are a greater number of exposed hairs, which means a cloth will tend to absorb light making it look dull and colourless.
To meet with the modern man suiting demands, Made to Measure has grown to become the focus point for businesses world-wide. Dormeuil has a tradition of supplying the best tailoring houses, from Italy to Japan. In Australia, the partnership between Dormeuil and Oscar Hunt has been long standing.
