Ah, the timeless embrace of Merino Wool, a beloved and enduring staple as autumn graces us with its presence. There's a certain robustness to this wool, an inherent strength that welcomes the crisp fall air while promising cozy warmth as the temperatures dip. And softness, oh, the hallmark of quality Merino; it caresses the skin, offering that plush comfort we all cherish, especially when it's crafted with the finest care.
As we sought the perfect yarn, our aim was clear: to find a textile that could not only stand tall on its own but also dance elegantly in layers during those bone-chilling, 'cold af' Canadian winters. Merino Wool, with its versatile nature, emerged as the frontrunner. Its fibers possess a unique ability to trap air, creating natural pockets of insulation, making it a stellar choice for both solo wear and as a key player in the art of layering. The winter winds might howl, but within the folds of Merino, you'll find a comforting sanctuary, a cozy cocoon against the icy bite of the Great White North.

4-Ply Tropical Wool
4-ply tropical wool is a luxurious fabric crafted with four fine threads twisted together, ultimately offering an unwrinklable, breathable, and bombproof (don't sue us) cloth, all while exuding an exquisite level of sophistication and charm.
What adds a delightful twist to this fabric is its intriguing contradiction; being both heavyweight and referred to as 'tropical.' Traditionally, we associate 'tropical' with lightness, perfect for warmer climates. Yet, in this innovative creation, we challenge that notion. While it maintains the essence of breathability, it boasts a sturdier weight that defies the conventional tropical fabric expectations. It redefines 'tropical' by seamlessly blending this lightweight breathability with durability, making it a fabric not only suitable for warm climates but one that transitions beautifully through all four seasons, embodying true versatility and refinement

It's the whisper of flexibility that turns a shirt into a companion for any adventure. Tough when it needs to be, gentle when you desire it.
Yes, we're pushing boundaries once more, charting a course between audacity and brilliance. Crafting a heavyweight brushed cotton overshirt was a leap of faith, a bet on the extraordinary.

Cotton is a mysterious yet fascinating fabric, seemingly simple yet intricately technical; lacking the strongest textiles background, we embarked on a learning journey, unraveling the complexities of terms like picks, ends, and ply—what is all this non-sense—but we went deep and learned it all. For this season, we really amped up the fabric of the Greenleaf, using a gorgeously silky 120/2-120/2 cotton twill.
Let's attempt a one-sentence masterclass on what this means: The '/2' signifies the ply of the yarn, where '2' indicates that two individual threads were twisted together to form one, enhancing the fabric's strength and quality—we're just kidding, we won't bore you to death.

Ahh, yes—Jacquard. This is more of a love letter to the invention rather than the fabric, sorry.
Derived from the brilliant mind of Joseph Marie Jacquard, a French weaver and merchant, who invented a mechanism that revolutionized the weaving process by using punched cards to control the pattern being woven.
In essence, Jacquard fabric stands as a homage to this technological marvel, where intricate designs and patterns are not just woven but orchestrated with a level of precision and artistry that was once deemed beyond the realm of possibility. The punched cards, akin to an early form of binary code, instruct the loom on which threads to lift, creating an astonishing array of patterns, from the subtlest motifs to the grandest tapestries.
The beauty of Jacquard lies not only in its stunning visual appeal but also in the remarkable versatility it offers. From intricate floral designs to geometric wonders, the Jacquard loom can craft a vast array of textures, making it a fabric beloved by artisans and designers alike. It has transcended its origins, becoming a timeless canvas for creativity, forever indebted to the inventive spirit of Joseph Marie Jacquard.
