Merino is the world’s finest and softest wool, a complex natural fibre grown by Merino sheep. Every year these sheep produce new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre. Seréne uses superfine Merino single jersey and rib, Fully Certified to the RWS (Responsible Wool Standard), using Certified Non-Mulesed Merino Wool and produced by wool growers who employ sustainable farming practices. All our Merino garments in the collection are made in New Zealand.

A super natural fibre from an incredible animal. Merino is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature, helping you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot. Merino wool naturally breathes, being hygroscopic it has the ability to absorb moisture and transport it away from the body leaving your skin dry and comfortable. It even absorbs the odour molecules from sweat, which are only released upon washing, making it wonderfully odour resistant. Wool’s inherent chemical structure makes it naturally resistant to flame, and has superior self-extinguishing properties which makes it one of the safest fibres to wear. Wool is a non-allergenic fibre, which is resistant to the growth of bacteria and dust mites. The extremely fine structure of the Merino fibre allows it to bend far more than traditional, coarser wool fibres, making it feel soft and gentle against your skin. The fibre is like a coiled spring, this natural elasticity helps Merino wool garments stretch with you, yet return to their original shape. Ideal to wear when exercising, lounging and sleeping.


Linen is one of the oldest known fabrics on earth, woven from the fibres found inside the stem of the flax plant. Flax is praised for being an eco-friendly fibre, as no part is wasted during the production of flax yarn – the linseeds, oil, straw and fibre are all usable byproducts. Flax is a fast growing plant with a growth cycle of a mere 100 days, at which point it can be harvested. Resilient & low-maintenance, the flax plant is capable of growing in poor soil, in some cases it can rehabilitate polluted soil. Flax cultivation is water efficient, with rain and dew usually being sufficient and requiring minimal fertiliser and pesticides. Considered highly sustainable, flax is a very productive crop (second to hemp) per hectare providing optimum land use, and has a high rate of carbon dioxide absorption.

Renowned for its exceptional breathability, Linen allows for better airflow against your body with its open weave structure and texture, making it the ideal fabric for hot and humid weather helping you feel cool. Linen has excellent moisture wicking properties, absorbing up to 20% of its weight in moisture and releasing it quickly before feeling damp, keeping you dry and comfortable. A natural thermoregulator, due to the hollow core of the fibre which creates pockets of air within the fabric allowing heat from your body to pass through in warm conditions and traps it in cool conditions. Linen has natural antibacterial properties, which can help prevent odour from forming, and is hypoallergenic. A strong durable fabric and a distinct textured slub appearance gives the relaxed yet polished summertime aesthetic. Linen ages gracefully, becoming softer with each wash and wear.


Considered the epitome of pure timeless luxury, Mulberry Silk is highly regarded for its soft luxurious lustre, the distinguishing feature of high quality Silk due to the exceptionally fine smooth fibres. Produced by silkworms known as Bombyx mori specifically bred for silk production (sericulture), these silkworms primarily feed on cultivated Mulberry tree leaves which are a renewable resource. The silk thread is unwrapped from the cocoon of the silkworm, formed from a continuous thread approx 800m in length, once harvested and processed the silk thread is spun into yarn. Seréne uses a beautiful sandwash finish on the Mulberry Silk, adding a subtle velvety feel giving an understated luxe appearance and handle to the garments.

Mulberry Silk is smooth and lightweight with a fluid drape making it a perfect sleepwear option. Its fine, uniform texture feels gentle against the skin and reduces friction, which can be beneficial for hair and skin health. Silk is highly breathable and insulating, allowing for moisture wicking and temperature regulation, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Naturally hypoallergenic, it’s an excellent garment choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies. Silk is resistant to odours, which helps keep your garments smelling fresh even after prolonged use. Choosing Silk is an investment in your sleep time routine, making each night’s sleep a rejuvenating and indulgent experience for your overall well being.


Combining the best characteristics of both Cotton and Silk yarns to create an airily lightweight fabric, that keeps you cool and comfortable during the warmer humid months with airflow and breathability. Seréne uses a blend of 70% Cotton / 30% Silk in our capsule range which has a subtle lustre to the surface appearance and soft gentle handle. The floaty drape of the fabric feels soft and light against the body, adding a dreamy comfort when worn.

Organic Cotton

The journey from the cotton fields to the finished fabric of Organic Cotton encompasses responsible agriculture and the priority of environmental health and human well-being over conventional cotton farming methods. Organic Cotton is produced without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, relying on natural and organic materials such as compost and manure, and introducing beneficial insects and the use of trap crops as examples. This type of farming emphasises practices that promote soil health, efficient water management, crop rotation and non-toxic defoliation methods when harvesting to remove the leaves from the cotton. Organic Cotton is typically grown from non-genetically modified (GMO) cotton seeds.

Organic Cotton is known for its exceptional softness and comfort against the skin. Highly breathable with excellent moisture wicking abilities, and hypoallergenic making it suitable for individuals with sensitive skin. Known for its durability and strength, Cotton can withstand regular wear and washing, providing long lasting garments. Cotton helps to regulate your body temperature, keeping you cool in hot weather by allowing heat to escape and providing warmth in cooler conditions by trapping air close to the skin, making it perfect for year round wear.
