How Lightweight Merino Wool Clothing Fits A Work-From-Home Lifestyle

When businesses turned to working from home, people ditched their collared shirts and trousers and adopted the mantra of casual Friday every day – but this doesn’t mean pyjamas or old t-shirts. Instead, people are turning to comfortable and practical clothing as the official lockdown uniform. We’re dressing up less, and need clothes that are comfortable enough to work in all day, but still functional enough for an active lifestyle. 


At Bluey Merino, we’re bridging the gap between urban and outdoor fashion with t-shirts, leggings, hoodies, and more made from superfine merino wool for ultimate mobility, breathability, and style. Here are just a few of the reasons our collection should be added to your lockdown wardrobe.

Adaptable basics for home, errands, and exercise

Chances are, your daily life has shifted in the past year to a completely different routine than you may be used to, so we’ve crafted a collection of functional merino wool clothing that will shift with you. Here are just a few of our most adaptable basics that can take you from your morning Zoom conference to your afternoon yoga session, to your evening supermarket run.

Henley Long Sleeve

Casual-chic enough to pair with jeans while running errands but comfortable enough to lounge around the house in, this mid-weight Merino-blend garment offers best in class next-to-skin softness with a relaxed comfort style fit.

Urban 340 Full-Zip Hoodie

Perfect to throw on for a walk around the park with the dog, this Full-Zip Hoodie works well casually and maintains your freedom of movement, is lightweight when worn during exercise and maintains your body warmth in cold conditions.

Functional activewear that inspires outdoor exercise

At our core, we are all about encouraging people to take on life’s adventures and live an active, healthy lifestyle. While we may not be able to go far, getting outside and exploring your own backyard is still important for not only your physical health, but also your mental health by reducing stress, improving your mood, improving confidence, helping you feel more relaxed, and more.

Here are some of our top pieces that will keep you warm and comfortable as you head outdoors for your daily exercise.

Women’s 200 Half Zip

Perfect for chilly or winter mornings, this 100% Australian Ultrafine Merino Half Zip range provides both comfort and warmth alone or as your first layer.

Yoga Pants

We all know yoga pants are an absolute staple for a pandemic closet. Our Ultrasoft Shaped Comfort Yoga Pants are durable enough for outdoor exercise, whilst still being luxurious in their softness and feel as you work from home.

With Bluey Merino activewear added into your lockdown wardrobe, you’ll experience next-level comfort and casual style no matter if you’re binging a Netflix series, heading to a doctor’s appointment, or rolling out the mat for a yoga session.
