As of 2014 Merlin is an official licensed manufacturer of waxed cotton by Halley Stevensons. Based in Dundee, Scotland, Halley Stevensons are specialist manufacturers of waxed and oiled cottons, supplying the high street brands such as Belstaff and Barbour. Halley Stevensons excel in the manufacture and innovation of waxed cotton fabrics, delivering products that meet rigorous performance standards.
The waxed cotton in the Merlin mens and ladies jacket is dyed, finished and at the Baltic works, where it has since 1864. Unlike other waxed cotton products on the market this is no substitute, ‘rip off’ cotton but the original waxed cotton with character. Few can match the expertise and commitment to customers’ requirements and expectations.
