The quality of these products is amazing and their customer service is fantastic. I ordered some items from their... Thermo Fleece collection and was sent the wrong items. I emailed the company to let them know that I had not received the items I ordered. The company responded promptly and I received the items I had ordered within a few days. They did not require the other items to be returned and I was pleasantly surprised with a free gift. I highly recommend this company for quality products and great customer service.read more

Well it has been a revelation to wear these Merino Skins, nothing short of amazed. Had no idea this level of quality... and comfort existed. Communication was as superior as their product. Happy I persevered in searching for such quality. Guess that saying proves true in this case, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince. Thanks to all of you at Ktena Knitting Mills for your commitment to quality of comfort!.read more

Excellent quality, even better pricing and service. Support the Aussie made gear, it's better in all aspects.

I highly recommend Merino wool leggings. I suffer from arthritis in both knees and find suitable pants to wear outdoors... in winter - is a challenge. I purchased these wonderful leggings and could not believe the change it made! I enjoy being outside and hardly feel the stiffnessin my legs. Great product!read more

Very friendly staff and excellent clothing, couldn't be happier with the quality and price. I bought the 'Merino Skins'... in long sleeve, crew neck (grey) which I've used now on several very cold nights on the motorcycle, works perfectly and very comfortable under the jacket. Also got a pair of "Thermo Fleece" long johns' (black) which are also excellent. Also tested these on the motorcycle and crawling around under the 4WD on cold concrete, works perfectly, very comfortable. Price is also fantastic considering it's Aussie made. 100% will be coming back for more :-)read more

Soft and comfortable merino tops and bottoms, best I've found so far in several Australian brands, both for quality... (and longevity), and price.My original Merino Skins are several years old and still going well, no holes, soft and warm despite being worn most of winter for 5 years. They also have a great range of wool blend in a bunch of styles, plus the service in the shop is excellent. Do yourself a favour and buy a set of thermals.read more
