What is Merino?
Merino wool is a natural fibre grown by Merino sheep and is widely considered to be the world's softest and finest wool. Merino has a range of high-performance benefits which includes being lightweight, breathable, quick-drying, temperature regulating and antibacterial properties.
Merino wool is breathability and natural antibacterial properties make it ideal for daily wear, all year round. This makes it superior compared with other materials which can create a hot and moist environment which can lead to a build-up of sweat, oil and bacteria.
Merino sheep produce a new fleece every year, which means Merino wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable.
