    Has anyone tried Smitten Merino? They are a bit of a distance from me (Florida vs. Tasmania), so I'd like a bit more info before I ordered.
    If you can wait until November I can give you more information. I'll be in Tasmania then and am planning to visit the Hobart location. I can do a recce and report back here.

    Let me know exactly what you would like me to find out. For myself I'll be trying on the Tiffany dress.

    Mostly, I'm interest in quality review. I'm not impressed with their model photos. Seams sometimes look twisted or lumpy. Of a top is tucked in and looks lumpy under the skirt. Or underwear lines show because the material is too thin. Also, since I'm in the USA and wear a 10 (or a UK 14), the size chart seems to show that I should wear a size smaller than that, but I don't like my clothing skin tight.

    Since you offered, Items that caught my eye:

    Kowloon Maxi Dress
    Holly Dress (It's sort of the Tiffany dress without sleeves.)
    Boat Neck Maxi Dress
    Tiffany Shift Dress (It's sort of the Holly dress only with sleeves. It's the one you are interested in, too.)
    Margo Dress
    Any of the midi or longer skirts. I have a feeling the Marion heavyweight might be more to my liking. The regular version looks too thin.
    Sleeveless wrap, especially the herringbone version, but also the lighter weights.
    The poncho.
    Also, the fit of any of the tops.

    Thanks!

    Hi. I own the Tiffany dress ( in black). Size wise it's smaller (14) than my regular size in fan dress (16). Nice and roomy in the hot weather. Recently returned from an extended European summer vacation and wore the Tiffany at least once a week. Very versatile. I like to wash my clothes after every wear and we had the luxury of washing facilities.... that particular fabric is pretty much bullet proof. I machine wash in cold with wool wash and tumble dry.

    Do not like their rib fabric (too stretchy). Also do not like the light colours, as you mentioned the fabric is too thin for a one layer wear out and about. It would be ok if wearing a cardigan over the dress.

    In terms of tops they tend to be loose so my advice is to ask for the garment measurement across certain body areas.

    For context I live in Singapore where is hot and humid every day. Wool clothing here is just not possible for me no matter how lightweight. Mostly I use my wool when I'm traveling to non tropical destinations.

    this is the merino wool clothing that I have:

    Ibex women's OD Heather tee
    Icebreaker Bliss wrap
    Icebreaker Villa skirt

    All the above is too heavy for Singapore. For me at least.

    I will revisit this thread when I'm in Tasmania so let me know if there are other things you would like me to check out. I will try on and take as many photos as I can.

    Have you tried? https://merinoandco.com.au/womenswea...dresses-skirts

    They have only a few but maybe something suitable for you?

    Yes but I've only tumble dried the Smitten merino 95% / spandex 5% fabric.

    I'm adding the following items to the list:

    Kathmandu Navua Tie (50% Merino 35% polyester 15% hemp)

    https://www.kathmandu.com.au/womens/...s-tie-top.html

    Wool& Avery dress

    These are what I will be comparing smitten's clothing to.

    Greetings,
    I'm anticipating your report, too. I'm more interested in skirts, but nice styling could temp me to get a dress. I'm not looking to buy this month. Thanks in advance for sharing! elisa
