WHY WE LOVE MERINO, YAK, & ALPACA WOOL
Thermo Regulating - Merino, yak, and alpaca wool are fashion’s natural climate regulating system. The breathing qualities of the fabric hold great advantages when it comes to comfort. These wools are perfect for all-year-round clothing options.
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, yak, and alpaca wool are surprisingly fine fabrics, 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, yak, and alpaca 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, yak, and alpaca wools are flexible, bend softly against your skin.
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, yak, and alpaca wool does miracles for style-lovers with sensitive skin. Research shows that wearing Merino, yak, and alpaca wool T-shirts or sweaters reduces adult and infant eczema symptoms impressively compared to other fabrics. These hypoallergenic fibers treat 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 sheep, yak, and alpaca that provide the wool graze the hills of New Zealand, Peru and Australia freely.
Biodegradable - The Merino, yak, and alpaca fiber will naturally decompose in soil when it is disposed. It will give back its nutrients into the earth.
