Merino wool is known as the finest and softest wool of any sheep. Merino wool is highly breathable because its fibers can absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture wicking it away from the body so the wearer stays dry. In contrast to synthetics merino is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature. So it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold and cool when the weather is hot.The natural anti-microbial properties of this wool make it odor-resistant. Merino wool is much better at protecting you from UV radiation than most synthetics and cotton. It is also extremely durable and does not require exceptional care.
It is possible to sort and select only the finest merino fibres measuring their microscopic diameter. The smaller the diameter the finer, softer and less scratchy the knitted garment will be. Only superfine (17.5 μm), hight quality fibres are used to make our Merino Supersoft yarn. This yarn produces a very light garment that is silky soft and can be worn directly on the skin. The finer fibres of merino wool are used only for making underwear fabrics.
Merino wool is a completely natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre.
