This Is The Chic Thermal Top Of Your Gorpcore Dreams

Our Fashion Editor, Rosie Dalton, layers her merino wool turtleneck under a silk slip dress and a denim jacket.

If you probably heard of gorpcore by now and, even if you haven’t, you’ve definitely seen it on the street. The trend, which takes its name from a trail mix, is all about wearing outdoor and adventure gear as fashion. It’s responsible for all those puffer jackets, Patagonia t-shirts and Velcro sandals you’ve been seeing around town. More often than not, these newly trendy items of clothing are made by outdoor adventure companies that actively work to preserve the great outdoors. They are also purpose-made for activities like hiking, which means they are both practical and comfortable. This means that gorpcore is good for your wardrobe and the planet.

We are always looking for ways to incorporate this pro-nature, anti-fast fashion trend into our lives and that’s why we’re so excited to introduce our new range of chic thermal tops! Just like the sensible thermal top that you wore on school camp in year 8, these sweaters and turtlenecks are made from 100% merino wool. But unlike the thermal tops you wore to school camp, they are also super fashionable. This means that they work just as well under a windbreaker on a camping trip as they do under a slip dress on a night out.

These gorpcore staples are made from merino wool, which is finer and softer than regular wool and dries quickly. This fabric is warm enough to see you through the coldest winter days and lightweight enough to wear when the weather can’t make up its mind (aka every day lately). The incredibly versatile sweaters are made locally in Australia by Woolerina. The ECA-certified company produces all their products fairly and ensures that the sheep they sheer grow their fleeces in the best living conditions. That makes their sweaters pretty darn special in our eyes!
