Fantastic product...lives up to all that was advertised..thank you,,

Best Tshirt ever.

At last a quality merino tshirt !
Good and long, fits well with quality stitching.

Plum T-shirt

Cool and comfortable with a freshness that hopefully lasts a long time.


I ordered two of these tshirts from Ottie and I have to say I'm impressed. The shirts are well made, in Melbourne, using Australian merino wool. They're a bit thinner than I expected, but not in a bad way. Great for all seasons! They're comfortable, they fit me really well and they come with all the usual benefits of merino wool. I'm so much happier with these than with any of my cotton tshirts. Worth the extra money. Can't wait for more colours!


very good shirt just lack of colours to choose from

Glad you like your t-shirt, Andrew. Colour range will expand this year - we're a new business, just starting out and didn't want to make products (and colours) that didn't sell. So, we kept the colour range limited to begin with - it's a range that we crowdsourced with the community over at Hiking in Australia and New Zealand (check the group out on Facebook) so we could be sure we created colours people wanted. :) Stay tuned. Cheers, Paul

3 things about the product

The biggest selling point for me, a guy who loves to run around, get muddy, get sweaty, really have a bit of fun in the elements, but also feel comfortable working from the computer; is that I don’t have to put it in the wash after one use, and that I don’t feel like a grub when I wear it multiple times in a week.
Also, it’s a little longer in length than normal shirts, so that pretty cool.
It’s best for when you switch activities a lot, like from working on the computer, to a little 2km jog and back again. It just save you time not having to switch attires.

Perfect Purchase

Otter Merino made good on their aim to get my order to me despite the last minute Christmas rush. My husband was thrilled with his new navy Ottie Merino T-Shirt.
Perfect colour, perfect fit, perfect length, perfect quality! Thank you for this winner Ottie.


Thank you Ottie for my recent purchase of 2 XXL tshirts. They are awesome! I love the longer length & they are really comfy to wear. I wil be buying one for my son & more for me in the future!
Keep up the great work!


good, good length

Australian made quality merino tees = thumbs up from me

Bought two recently and was very happy with purchase. Went 1 size up (as I would normally do for any merino product to allow for some shrinkage) and size was spot on. Was also impressed that these tees appear a bit longer than the other brands which should also safeguard against usual shrinkage. Good medium weight feel to fabric (not too think and not too thin).
