This is the authentic made-in-Canada gentleman's robe crafted from genuine Viyella 80% long staple cotton and 20% Australian merino wool blend fabric, renowned for over two centuries for its soft hand, warmth, color fastness, and durability. Hailed as the world's first branded fabric, a heritage that can be traced back to 1784.
The brilliant color, soft feel and durable weave experienced in these shirts are the result of a fine-tuning process that started in 1784 near Sherwood Forest, Nottingham, England. Today they use the skills and expertise of their forefathers to bring to you a beautiful practical shirt, one of the only garments in your wardrobe you can hand down the generations.
Combining a blend of wool & cotton together in the same thread creates a strong but soft fabric that will keep you “cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s not”. The unique natural properties of these two natural fibers work together to creating an intimate blend. Modern technical fibers offer this today, however Viyella was the first and most natural performance fabric centuries ago!
