WHY WE LOVE MERINO, YAK, & ALPACA WOOL
Thermo Regulating - Merino wool is fashion’s natural climate regulating system. The breathing qualities of the fabric hold great advantages when it comes to comfort. Merino wool is perfect for all-year-round clothing.
Cooling - When it’s hot, the fibers absorb your body’s moisture vapors and evaporate them outside of the fabric – keeping you nice and cool.
Warming - But in wintertime, these moisture vapors condense inside the fiber, giving off heat and keeping you nice and warm.
Odor Resistant - Great news for all people dependent on deodorant: merino wool absorbs all odor molecules and only releases them upon washing. No matter how hot it is, you’ll feel fresh all day long. Your merino wool T-shirt or shirt will not smell – like cotton shirts do. On top of that, you don’t need to wash it each time you’ve worn it. Just hang it in the open air and enjoy it again the next day.
Quick Drying - Merino wool is a surprisingly fine fabric, that releases water easily. It’s dry long before your other garments are. Just put it in the machine, dry flat or place it on a hanger and wear it again in no time!
Wrinkle Resistant - The elastic properties of the merino fiber make it extremely wrinkle resistant. If you hang your shirt out to dry, ironing becomes optional. And when you’re travelling with a packed suitcase, just get out your merino wool clothes, hang them for half an hour and you’re all good. No annoying wrinkle damage from seatbelts or backpacks any more. It’s the ultimate on-the-go companion.
Washable - The naturally protective outer layer of your merino wool shirt or T-shirt will prevent stains from being absorbed. However, when your favorite item is dirty, just wash it on low temperature. Not sure how to start? Check the care label inside your garment!
No Itch - Have we got news for you! Our merino wool is flexible, bends softly against your skin and doesn’t itch one bit.
Durable - Merino wool is 6 times stronger than cotton. Each fiber can be bent back onto itself over 20.000 times. In comparison: cotton breaks after 3.200 times. Poor cotton. Lucky merino wool T-shirt owner!
Non Allergenic - Merino wool does miracles for style-lovers with sensitive skin. Research shows that wearing merino wool T-shirts or sweaters reduces adult and infant eczema symptoms impressively compared to other fabrics. This hypoallergenic fiber treats your skin softly and with great care.
UV Resistant -The natural UV barrier of the fabric keeps you safe from damaging UV radiation from the sun – unlike synthetics and cotton. Hello, worry-free summer times!
Renewable - Synthetic fibers and cotton demand a great amount of manipulation and processing. Merino wool, however, is made of grass, water and fresh air. The merino sheep that provide the wool graze the hills of New Zealand and Australia freely, delivering a new fleece harvest twice a year.
Biodegradable - The Merino fiber will naturally decompose in soil when it is disposed. It will give back it nutrients into the earth.
