GLAMWRAP is a luxuriously soft, lightweight, superfine merino wool wrap that folds into its own protective travel pouch and lives happily in your handbag – always on hand when you need an extra layer of warmth.

Available in two sizes - Traveller and Cocoon, GLAMWRAP is ideal for days and nights out, travel and special occasions. The comfort of knowing GLAMWRAP is in your handbag means you'll not have to worry about being unexpectedly caught out in the cold.

At the theatre, the movies, at restaurants, on aeroplanes, at weddings, outdoor concerts or waiting for a taxi. GLAMWRAP will be on hand whenever the sun goes down, the weather turns or the air-conditioning is set too low.

And, with the versatile and thermal properties of superfine merino wool, GLAMWRAP can also be used as a sarong, to protect shoulders from the sun, as a discreet extra layer under a jacket or as a headscarf when travelling - whether in foreign lands or in a convertible!

GLAMWRAP was born after a night out at the movies. My friends and I had the usual assortment of jackets, cardigans and clunky scarves in case it was too cold, and complained about how often we had to take an extra layer along - just in case - or borrow our husband’s jackets when we got caught out.

I got to thinking there must be a better solution, a wrap that could fold into a pocket-sized travel pouch and live in our handbags, ready and waiting when we needed it. And my GLAMWRAP journey had begun!

 

Enjoy your Glamwrap. It is designed to travel wherever life takes you, so you will never be caught out in the cold again. It really will be the star of your handbag!. Linda

After countless hours researching fabrics, discarding one after the other as they failed to meet my criteria, I finally discovered THE one, a particular fabric made from superfine Australian merino wool and processed in New Zealand. Lightweight, thermal, breathable, machine washable and crease resistant, superfine merino fabric drapes beautifully and looks and feels luxuriously soft. 

Merino has so many fabulous qualities. It  is a 100% natural, renewable, sustainable and biodegradable fibre and has long been in demand for high quality garments. It is unique in its ability to keep you warm in the cold and cool in a humid summer, protecting the microclimate next-to-the-skin by absorbing and releasing moisture.

Merino wool is generally less than 24 micron in diameter while superfine merino must meet the more stringent criteria of between 15 - 18.5 micron.

If you would like to know more about the advantages and care of merino have a read of the information and tips at Australian Wool Innovation website.

This was the biggest challenge. I passionately wanted GLAMWRAP products to be made in Australia but I hadn’t realised how difficult this would be and how small the local garment manufacturing sector had become. The more I heard “you’ll have to go offshore” the more determined I was for GLAMWRAP to be proudly made in Australia.

And manufacturing in Australia has very attractive features. It means I can work closely with my makers to fine tune details and I can readily oversee quality and timeliness – in short – ensure I never have to disappoint a customer because I am too far removed from the process.

If not for Glamwrap, a combination of cold weather and poor packing would have left me freezing on last month’s trip to the Southern Highlands of NSW. In two days I barely took it off and managed to use it as a scarf, a wrap, and as an extra layer under my coat. Thanks Glamwrap, you saved the day!" Michelle H.
The aircraft cabin was particularly cold on my flight home from Melbourne. Thankfully had Glam Wrap in my handbag and could drape it over my shoulders to keep warm – it was fabulous and so light, made the trip home so much more comfortable. Helen W.
Just received mine in the post, beautifully wrapped thank you! This one is a present but after feeling how fine it is will have to get one for me too! Sharon B.
I received my glamwrap last week. Shipping received in 2 days as advised....great! I have been looking for something like this for 3 years now and this little pocket of warmth is going to be so handy for holidays etc. and especially on long plane flights. Trixie W.
OMG.... How excited was I this morning when a package arrived. To find my gift wrapped scarf. I wore it today, so light and warm. Can't say enough about the presentation and quick delivery after ordering. Thank you again Linda. Absolute winner. Michelle B.
Glamwrap to the rescue keeping me warm on a cold Melbourne evening whilst waiting ages for a taxi to come. Wonderful thank you. Anne B.
Received my Glamwraps yesterday. Would just like to say thank you for the quick & efficient service. It's nice to see someone go into business who has obviously done her research and executes it well. The packaging an added bonus. Love my wraps as well. Congratulations on a job well done. Darlene G.
Gorgeous wrap arrived today - some luxe - thanks for creating this - perfectly timed for a cold winter. Francene C.
I was delighted to receive the Glamwrap beautifully gift wrapped yesterday afternoon. Thank you for your patience and amazing customer service. I cannot wait for my daughter’s birthday so I can see the wrap in real terms. You are so professional – it is a pleasure to deal with a business who offers such service. Denise W.
My glamwraps were fabulous on a recent overseas trip. Perfect on the flight and for anything and everything else. The pouch is very cleverly designed and practical. I like the fantastic wool fabric of the wrap the best, it is nice and stretchy and keeps its shape, always looks great. Thanks also for your superb service. Kim V.
The wrap has arrived and I'm pleased to see that it really is small enough to pop into a handbag or travel bag. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this. I appreciate the thoughtful wrapping - recyclable and yet appropriate for a gift.Jennifer K.
Just wanted to thank you for your well timed 'glamwrap', so beautifully presented too. It was the perfect gift and I'm am sure there will be many more orders to come from myself and friends. Kate M.
Thankyou for the prompt service! I received my Glamwrap the very next day! As promised it is a great quality piece. Now I have decided I "need" a Cocoon. It is just a matter of choosing a colour. I am very impressed with the gift wrap presentation. Jill D.
I just wanted to let you know that my wrap arrived safely this morning. I'm delighted with it and looking forward to testing it out on those chilly evenings/on icy buses! It's a great idea. We've all wished at some time or another to have something so warm yet handbag-friendly.Jennifer L.

You are so kind and thoughtful. My Glamwrap and I send you a HUGE thank you for the replacement pouch. It arrived this afternoon and was in use immediately as I went out tonight with my husband for our 38th Wedding Anniversary! It really wasn't the same not having the travel pouch. Thank you again. Brionne V.
Thank you so much for such great service! I have received my glamwrap within 24 hours of ordering it. It is lovely & I can't wait to use it! Leanna C.
Bought a Glamwrap back in October and just wanted to send a personal note to say that the Glamwrap performed above and beyond what I expected it to in Nepal when I was doing charity work and trekking. It was one of the few things I could not have survived without in Nepal in the frigid cold evenings at 4000m altitude and/or when there was a windchill. It added that extra warmth either over my head or around my neck under a windbreaker. After 5 and 1/2 weeks, it was the smallest, lightest and easily the least smelliest of all my gear. It will now finally get the wash it deserves from it's adventure and will be cared for lovingly for continued adventures to come! I suspect I will be getting another one, maybe a shawl, in the new year for a lady I stayed with in Nepal, but just wanted you to know you developed a great practical item for all situations. Thank you! D-Marie

A quick email to let you know that we have received the two wraps and are absolutely delighted with them.

Many thanks, Linda - safely received, and beautifully packaged for gift-giving overseas! Much appreciated.Margaret M.
I am writing to thank you for sending the two wraps we ordered so promptly. We are so happy with them. It took me a little while to unwrap mine as they were so beautifully presented and I was reluctant to spoil the wrapping. They are brilliant. Thank you for all the attention you gave us in letting us know when the poppy came in etc., it is really appreciated. Hopefully we can encourage others to invest in one also. Thanks again. Coral Q.
Thank you for your prompt and efficient processing of my order which arrived this morning. The wraps are lovely - the Poppy is for a friend and I know she will be delighted. Susan H.
I want to thank you for my traveller glam wrap which arrived today. It's perfect the colour and size are exactly what I'm wanting I'm looking forward to using it. I want to compliment you on the packaging and the way it was sent was lovely with the hand written card etc beautifully presented your marketing is excellent. If I may offer a suggestion I'm struggling to remove the instruction tag as there are a lot of stitches and I don't have un unpicker so if it's meant to be removed which I'd prefer maybe a few less stitches or an instruction card instead of label. Amanda C.
I have received the wraps! Thank you for your help and super service. The birthdays are on Tuesday and I am sure that the girls will love the wraps as much as I love mine. Its been a pleasure to ‘do business with you'. Dani S.

Just a quick note: I arrived tonight in Venice, to visit my mother. And I used for the first time your beautiful, soft and warm black wrap on the plane! It saved me from the freezing air conditioning! Grazie. Nicoletta di P.
