15% off merino wool at Ibex.com - Ibex Outdoor Clothing

Ibex crafts clothing for every season, offering a complete range of outdoor apparel including baselayers, midlayers, jackets, and accessories. We work with family-run sheep stations in the high-alpine pastures of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. These specialist farmers produce the highest quality fibers from the special pink-nosed, pink-footed sheep known as Merino. The fact that the farmers are committed to sustainable practices as they humanely guard their flocks and care for the land that has been passed down through generations inspires Ibex to be mindful of the environment in every stage of the production of their garments, from sheep to shelf.
