This week you may have seen we're going mad for wool. In fact We Love Wool!
Apart from being one of the most versatile fibres in the world, it's soft, warming, breathable, moisture wicking, naturally elastic but above all, wool can be made into incredibly stylish clothing.
We recently fell a little more in love with wool when we met its very cute and cuddly origins - in the form of newborn lambs, Snowflake and Spot at our recent shoot.
Our new favourite models were simply too adorable not to share some behind the scenes snaps of. Plus we hope you love the gorgeous and bright Sportscraft winter woollies.
Here at Sportscraft we're also very proud to be one of the first Australian brands to be award the Woolmark stamp of quality and we continue to work with them today. Be sure to look out for the Woolmark label on selected Sportscraft woollen pieces.
No matter what your age, there's nothing better than a hug and spending time with your mum, and that's why we love Mother's Day. For the next couple of weeks at Sportscraft it's all about celebrating and spoiling mum with special treats and our beautiful and cosy new winter collection.

We love the idea of a garden party. We hope you enjoy our easy guide full of great gift ideas, games and activities to keep the family entertained, and some delightful sweet treats for everyone to enjoy.It's the perfect excuse to get the family together and bring out the child within everyone!

This week we're thrilled to announce the arrival of Sportscraft Activ, our new range of athletic gear designed for the Australian way of life.
Designed in three categories, Make Tracks, Stretch Out & Unwind, the collection offers wearable athletic gear to suit all your active needs.
Recently our brand ambassador, Kristy Hinze did a beautiful shoot for Good Health magazine looking radiant, glowing and healthy and wearing the new collection.
We took a moment to chat to Kristy about her active lifestyle.
How important is it having an active lifestyle?
KH: It depends how you are active... I believe that exercise is extremely important, that said you need to be smart about it... Pushing yourself can sometimes do more harm than good... I listen to my body and change up my workout... Yoga is my exercise of choice though...
What’s your general approach to health and taking care of yourself?
KH: I am of the opinion that most things in moderation are fine... I love healthy eating though... Your body is there with you every day, it is your "life partner". Treat it with respect and it will serve you better...
How does exercise and time for keeping fit feature in your day to day life?
KH: I try to take an hour every day, whether it is at 6 am before Dylan gets up or 8 pm when she is asleep...
I do yoga daily, and I love to walk and run... I try to factor in a workout a day but sometimes just running around after a toddler all day is exercise enough.
What is your exercise routine?
KH: I don't have a 'routine'. I get too bored doing the same thing... I even change the styles of yoga or the sequence so I don't get tired of it.
What kind of exercise do you love and why?
KH: Favourites would be Anusara and Vinyasa yoga.. In a heated room. It is a full body workout that makes me sweat and aside from feeling great, it brings a sense peace and clarity.
What’s your approach to food and eating?
KH: Most things in moderation!
What are your favourite foods? Healthy & a treat..
KH: Eggplant Parmigiana is favourite food...not the most weight conscious though!!! Vegemite and cheese toasties!!! Yummy...
Healthy treat would have to be watermelon with chopped up mint.
What products from the Sportscraft Activ Collection are you enjoying wearing?
KH: Love it all, it is so functional.... I wear it to the grocery store and yoga... It looks great and is so comfortable...a favorite piece is the jacket that I slip on before and after yoga classes...
