ZQ Merino + Hemp Knitwear

Proudly grown and knitted in New Zealand

From Glenaan Station, New Zealand, Hemprino brings together hemp and merino in a single blend to create knits that are deliciously soft on the skin, light and warm.
Our knitwear is ethically and sustainably made in New Zealand.

Our Story.

Located in the Upper Rakaia Gorge beneath the snowcapped Southern Alps of New Zealand, Glenaan Station is home to Paul and Prue Ensor and our children Juliet, Guy, and Hugh. We produce ultra-fine merino wool alongside sustainable farming practices and biodiversity. Hemprino was founded out of our passion for natural fibres, and we are proud to bring together hemp and merino in our luxurious knits.

Why Hemp and Merino?

Our family has been producing wool for over 100 years. In that time we have seen a trend towards blending wool with synthetics to achieve desired outcomes such as drape, strength and structure. In response we sought to find a natural alternative to blend with our merino... and we found hemp!
