NAGNATA Merino Wool Retro Check Mini Short.

Retro sports inspired high-rise shorts with check jacquard 2-tone textile design and framed with contrast colour bands.

Designed with zero-yarn-waste using Superfine Australian Merino Wool on fully-fashioned knitting machines. Fabrication is designed by NAGNATA in collaboration with The Woolmark Company.  The Merino Wool yarn has a core synthetic fibre filament offering elasticity, that is wrapped in superfine wool so only the natural fibres touch your skin. The result is a premium fabrication with great elasticity and return with an extremely soft hand feel.

The designers drew textile inspiration from traditional mens wool suiting, translating woven checks into contemporary knitted jacquard fabrications. 

NAGNATA MERINO MOVEMENT textiles are designed to enhance the natural performance and sustainability properties of Australian Merino Wool.

Style is designed for low impact exercises like yoga, pilates, barre, dance and studio-to-street style.

Australian Merino wool is a natural, biodegradable and renewable fibre. Merino wool is one of the world’s most technically advanced fibres, with unique moisture and temperature regulation properties. The fibre works in total harmony with the wearer’s body due to its excellent natural elasticity, odour resistant and moisture management properties and natural breathability.
