LOOK AFTER ME
Merino is easy to look after because it doesn’t need washing nearly as often as other fabrics. We recommend washing once every 20 wears. Cold machine wash on wool cycle. Use wool wash detergent (It has less nasty chemicals). Complete care guide
Wool is grown year-round by Australia’s 71 million sheep, consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass.
When a wool fibre is disposed of, it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth. Renewable Every year Australian sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.
SOFT AND COMFORTABLE
Merino wool fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour then move it away to evaporate into the air. So Merino wool clothing is extremely breathable and less prone to clamminess.
Warm and cool
In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool 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.
Because Merino wool can absorb moisture vapour, it tends not to create static electricity, helping it to drape beautifully and be less likely to cling uncomfortably to your body than other fabrics.
EASY TO CARE FOR
Recent innovations mean many Merino wool garments can now be machine-washed and tumble dried, providing a simple solution to the common question of ‘How to wash wool?’
Merino wool fibres have a natural protective outer layer that helps prevent stains from being absorbed. And because Merino wool tends not to generate static, it attracts less dust and lint.
At microscopic level, each Merino wool fibre is like a coiled spring that returns to its natural shape after being bent. This gives Merino wool garments a natural resistance to wrinkles.
In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool can absorb moisture vapour which means less sweat on your body. Merino wool even absorbs the odour molecules from sweat, which are only released upon washing.
