Why Wear Merino?

 

Why Wear Merino?

Comfort & Performance...Naturally!

We wear merino wool garments for the same reason sheep grow it....to protect us from the elements.

Each minute fibre is made from interlocking proteins called keratins - the same proteins that act as a protective outer layer on our own skin. This gives merino wool the unique ability to work like a second skin - in total harmony with our own body's protection mechanisms.

Merino wool not only stretches and moves when we do - it insulates our body, keeping us dry when we sweat, cool when we are hot, and warm when we are cold.

The natural properties of Merino provides you with health benefits and also comfort advantages over other fibres. Wool is naturally fire resistant, it breathes and insulates. Designed for comfort whilst at work or play, it is ideal for wear all year round - keeping you warm in winter, and cool and dry in summer and can be worn in all climates from the temperate zones to the steamy tropics.

Merino is Circular and Renewable

Merino and wool fibres are completely renewable - this means wool comes from the earth and will return to it. Other fibres follow a linear model meaning they cannot be renewed or return to the earth once created.

Merino wool lets our body breathe & insulates, keeping us dry when we sweat, cool when it's hot and warm when it's cold.

TESTIMONIALS

Perfect for Menopause!

May I say I absolutely love your products, especially as menopause makes my temperature regulation so unpredictable. The wool is just so easy to layer up or strip off as needed and takes care of any perspiration so I'm not dripping wet then freezing after the hot flush has subsided!! Also my grandson who is 8 and has eczema and sensitive skin, absolutely loves his long sleeved T-shirts and wears them non stop!
