We are Jacqui & Takeshi. We met over twenty years ago when I was visiting Japan on a working holiday. My stay kept getting extended until eventually we were married with two kids ...
Takeshi works as a belt maker so I was able to convince him that bringing hats, scarves and gloves in from my home country New Zealand wouldn't be such a leap.
We both love merino wool and wear it exclusively as soon as the temperatures drop. It doesn't snow more than once a year where we live but we get icy cold winds from the nearby sea in Osaka Bay.
Tak is an avid golfer. Jac loves swimming and gardening. We're not super outdoorsy but we hate being even the slightest bit cold.
Our love of wool extends to things like woolen duvets on our beds and a huge but very old rug made from New Zealand wool in our living room. If we could get a sheep we would.
We'd love to hear from you if you're also a fan of wool or you are looking for something in particular.
