Why dress in merino? Merino wool and the unique properties

14.10.19 24297x read


Merino is a kind of sheep that comes originally from North Africa. In the 18th century they came to Spain, where the export to other countries was banned. Nevertheless, they expanded to France, Austria, Britain and last but not least in the 19th century to Australia, which is now the largest producer of quality merino wool.

There are several types of merino sheep, but all have in common that they have very fine hairs. Per 1 cm square there are up to 4000 hairs.

Features merino wool in several steps :

  • Does not irritate or itch

It is one of the finest and softest wools produced in the world.

  • Regulates optimal body temperature

Merino wool fiber is naturally curly, so the clothing has excellent insulating properties. The basic feature of wool is its warmth, or its ability to capture heat. Thanks to its breathability, it is able to adapt to body temperature. Therefore, it is said that in winter it warms, in summer it cools.

  • It's breathable

It is able to absorb up to 30% of its volume. Functional underwear therefore remains breathable and does not cool even if you sweat.

  • Absorbs sweat

It is able to wick moisture away from the body. The moisture in the wool is easily warmed up, so there is no unpleasant, cool feeling when sweating.

  • It's antibacterial

The special flaky surface of the wool fiber prevents the proliferation of bacteria that otherwise easily multiply on a flat surface. The irregular structure of the wool fiber slows the proliferation of bacteria that do not have enough nutrients from the sweat.

  • It doesn't smell

Merino wool clothing does not smell even after prolonged wear. This is an advantage over, for example, synthetic materials.

  • Merino is naturally elastic, so you can stretch your clothes as needed. Plus, it's crease-free.
  • It is suitable for sports, at work and at home.

Merino fiber is one of the most perfect materials in the world!
