Merino Wool

The Merino is one of the oldest breeds of sheep. Merinos are able to survive the hot and freezing temperatures of New Zealand.

The Unique Properties of Merino Wool

Moisture wicking:

  • Merino fiber absorbs up to 35% of its own weight in water before it starts feeling wet (absorbs humidity and then evacuates it in the atmosphere).


  • Keeps you warm when cold and cool when hot.

Odour control

  • Better odour resistance dans other existing fibers (absorbs and traps unwanted odours which become harder to detect).

Merino wool also is biodegradable!
