4 OFF FARM WINNING WOOL COLLECTION LAUNCHED ON FARM 2014/15 International Woolmark Prize womenswear winner Marcia Patmos and woolgrower Carina Doran at ‘Ahgunyah’, NSW. PHOTO: Dominic Loneragan 2015 International Woolmark Prize womenswear winner Marcia Patmos, of design label M.PATMOS, visited Australia in October to see for herself the source of Merino wool and launch her winning collection, now available at David Jones. This year’s International Woolmark Prize womenswear winner, US designer Marcia Patmos, travelled a long way from her New York home to launch her award-winning Merino wool collection at the place where the natural fibre is produced: on a woolgrowing property. Visiting Australia for the first time, Patmos joined female woolgrowers from the Goulburn region in NSW for the Australian exclusive launch of her nomadic-luxe wool collection at woolgrower Carina Doran’s family property, ‘Ahgunyah’. Carina, a fifth generation woolgrower, runs 12,000 Merino sheep alongside her parents Angus and Sally McLean and Carina’s husband Andrew. “Coming to ‘Ahgunyah’ to see the natural beauty of where Australian Merino wool is produced and meeting Carina and her family has allowed me to explore the many faces of wool,” said Patmos. “From being grown on grass, water and sunshine right through to being turned into luxury apparel, I feel so lucky to be involved in this industry. “Merino wool is a perfect match for a travel- focused wardrobe for so many reasons – this premium fibre is super soft and lightweight, wrinkle free, temperature regulating, is UV resistant, odour resistant and can be worn for up to two weeks without washing.” Patmos has used a mixture of 100 per cent superfine Merino wool of 15.5 micron and 100 per cent extrafine mercerised Merino wool of 19.5 micron for the range that includes a convertible coat and expedition trousers.
