Fifty years on from their debut collaboration, Saint James and The Woolmark Company have unveiled a new collection made from merino wool -- known for being soft, natural, biodegradable and renewable. The exceptional fibre forms the basis of the new line for men and women, which includes sweaters with allover Breton stripes.

"Saint James and The Woolmark Company have built a partnership over 50 years on the essential values that we both share: to have the best quality, 100% pure merino wool and the use of innovative knitting techniques. This capsule collection was completely natural for us, reuniting our two brands, as we look to the future," said Luc Lesénécal, Saint James' CEO.

In addition to nautical-inspired sweaters, the collection boasts pieces for women with stripes and double-sided jacquard, again made from Australian merino wool. Sweaters, skirts, and dresses are also part of the mix.

All items will go on sale in Saint James stores around the world and online at the end of 2018.
