The Superfine Merino fabric we use is 100% Australian grown, spun and woven. It is not sent offshore to be processed but is made in Victoria, Australia. This means that our Merino retains a low carbon footprint by reducing the transportation required from the farm to our supplier, to us; all of which add to the already high sustainable credentials of wool fibre.
Our Merino is also certified ‘non-Mulesing’, meaning it is sourced from ‘best farming practices’ growers that ensure the highest standards of animal welfare.
The 170gsm (5.9 oz) Superfine Merino is light and tough, yet soft against the skin with a non itch feel. As the 170gsm regulates temperature so well, we use it as a base layer in winter and an only layer in summer, and have tested it from 0 degrees C all the way through to 38 deg C and can vouch for its outstanding abilities.
Other key features of Merino are:
- Fully breathable.
- Natural thermally regulating - keeps you warm in winter AND cool in summer.
- Naturally anti bacterial and odour free.
- Flame resistance.
- Sustainable, renewable and biodegradable.
- Ethically grown, locally.
- Guaranteed 17 Micron, Superfine.
- Not blended with other, lesser quality wool.
- Machine washable.
- Excellent colour fastness.

Eleven offers the Traditional Jersey as a team order item, meaning if you want to kit out your team, and have 5 or more tops you want to order, we can offer team discount pricing. Contact us for more information.
What about printing? Yes… with limitations. Merino as a textile does not take kindly to screen printing, as the fibre is exceptionally absorbent, so sucks most inks in causing a bleed effect. This means when you do screen Merino, the base colour tends to be very think or heavy and the overall effect is not to our standard.
The process we use is an applied transfer system. The design is applied with a solvent based ink to a super thin, flexible substrate. Once printed, the substrate is die cut and applied under eat and a mild pressure to the Merino. With this process we can achieve very crisp, full colour prints that do not 'disturb' the fabric but it does have its limitations, such as being unable to 'print' over or near seams.
If you are interested in our printing service, please contact us and we can discuss the requirements.

Product + Customer Reviews
“I received my new jersey, and wore it for a ride this morning. I'd have to say that it's my new favorite, so thank you! A park ranger even pulled his truck over to ask where I got it. ”
Dylan W, USA (via Facebook)
Apologies for not jumping back into this email to let you know that I did in fact get this really really nice jersey from you!
I really like how light weight the wool is. This will work very well here when the weather finally gets warm enough.”
Terry G, USA
“...Thanks for the beautiful wool jerseys. They arrived on Monday and are almost too nice to wear! Thank you!”
Lyn G, Australia

"Even on warm ride, when sweating, the Merino worked its magic and kept me from feeling sweaty and gross. The Merino held up well on continuous laundering, which is washing on delicate cold setting and line drying. Color has stayed true to the original over the three month review. For owning a one-of-a-kind, designed by you, handmade for you jersey... you really can’t beat it. As well, shipping costs from Australia to the US is not that bad paired with a quick turn around time, you are set."cycleExif
"...I received a package in the mail which contained an enlightening surprise: this merino stuff is soft. Soft, pliable, flexible and smooth. It felt good. The real telling, however, would come with the riding. I took it out for a quick 60 kilometer (37 mile) ride, where I managed to experience wool’s wicking advantage. Wool, by its very nature, pulls moisture off your body even before it turns into a droplet. Finally, an Australian brand with an Australian-made product that can compete with overseas offerings. If you’re a serious cyclist, even if you’re more of a casual rider, you owe it to yourself to try some of the Eleven Vélo range. I can now affirm that Eleven Vélo merino wool feels vastly superior to synthetic fabric and, according to the website, it is flame resistant, fully breathable, fully sustainable, renewable and biodegradable. It’s also ethically and locally grown. It’s not blended with lesser quality wool and it’s machine washable..."
Ordering ELEVEN vélo bespoke products
An Eleven vélo product is more than an item pulled out of the box, packaged and sent to you. An Eleven vélo product product has a part of you in it, a part that is uniquely yours, which is why our bespoke experience is a special one.
1: When we process your order we print it out and make up your order sheet. This details your order for cutting and sewing and you will receive this with your order.
2: Your order sheet is then placed in a 'job bag' along with any needed components; we ship orders in the same job bag they start life in.
3: We then batch your order with all other orders for cutting. At this stage you will receive an email stating your order in 'in the pipeline'.
4: When cut, we put everything back in the job bag and put it in for sewing. Once complete, we do a QC check, pack, ship and email you letting you know your order is on its way to you.
Bespoke orders are more complex than grabbing something out of a box! All ELEVEN vélo products follow a 10 working day cycle* from start to end. To help you understand it a little better, the chart below outlines the process.
