A merino sheep’s fleece is breathable in summer, insulating in winter, and exceptionally lightweight, making them ideally built for the extremes. This is also the reason why their fleece is the perfect fibre to create the best active wear and clothing. Merino can absorb and retain up to 30% of its own weight in moisture and still feel dry to the touch, whereas most synthetics feel wet after they absorb less than 7%. While merino wool can keep you warm when it’s cold out, it also works double duty. The wool is also highly efficient at releasing body heat when you’re too hot, making it great for temperature regulation.
Merino wool is made out of keratin, a natural protein that is also in our own hair and skin. So, like our hair and skin, they are biodegradable, grown from a renewable source, and 100 percent natural. The finer more flexible fibres of merino wool softly bend when pressed against the skin and don’t prick you, leaving your bare skin happy and itch free. Another huge benefit of merino wool is that it’s naturally ultraviolet or UV resistant.
