What makes Merino so special?

Merino is not like other wools. Its fibres are finer and it has a range of superior natural qualities. 

Warm in Winter – Merino fibres are crimped or wavy. This structure has many tiny air pockets that act as insulation to hold in your body heat.

Cool in Summer – Merino wool’s natural breathability wicks away moisture generated by your body and allows the vapour to escape quickly, keeping you cool and dry.

Anti-odour – When we perspire, it is the bacteria which become harboured in our clothes and result in unpleasant odours. The unique fibre structure of Merino makes it difficult for bacteria to gain a hold, maintaining a consistently fresh shirt.
