Men’s 230 Competition performance tops have been designed for extreme winter sports and very cold temperatures. The added polyamide fibre does not in any way diminish the properties of Tasmanian wool. On the contrary, the combination of these materials makes this clothing very comfortable to wear. The fabric is ribbed which provides even greater stretch and freedom of movement. The material has been developed on the basis of body mapping technology, which means that each part has been knitted in a different way and weight. Because of this, 230 Competition clothing wicks moisture away from the skin faster and keeps certain parts warmer.
Tasmanian wool is excellent at temperature control and wicks sweat away from the skin really well. The material is extremely hardwearing and resistant to damage, making it perfect for performance clothing. This high quality material is superb at retaining heat, keeping you nice and warm in very cold conditions. On the other hand, when it suddenly gets warm or when you work really hard, it cools you down, wicking moisture away from the skin to the surface where it evaporates.
Material: 57 % Merino wool, 41 % Polyamide, 2 % Elastane
Fabric weight: 190–240 g/m²

Items made of sheep’s wool are very easy to care for. Because wool is self-cleaning, clothing made of wool need not be washed as often as other materials and can therefore be worn for longer periods without requiring a wash. This is a great advantage, for example, with thermal underwear or socks, as you can wear them for several days in a row, let’s say, on a trip outdoors where there is no way to wash them. Generally, you just need to let the clothes dry and leave them in fresh air for a while.
You can wash woollen clothing in the washing machine on a setting designated for wool and other delicate materials. It is important to set the temperature to no more than 30°C and the spin cycle to low. Always use only detergents specifically designed for wool and do not use fabric softener.
When washing by hand, keep the water temperature constant and do not wring the clothes, just gently squeeze the water out. Allow to air-dry, preferably on a flat surface. Never dry wool on a radiator, and avoid direct sunlight. Do not use a tumble dryer.

Our sheep wool vests are straight cut, so they are the same width all the way round. We therefore recommend that you measure at the widest point of your torso, and choose a vest at least a few centimetres larger to accommodate another layer of clothing underneath.
Merino wool sweaters are made from a wool knit, so they are stretchy and conform to your body shape. For children's patterns, you just need to know your torso height, but for adult sweaters chest circumference is also important. Use this information to choose the ideal size quickly and easily.
We recommend that you choose thermal underwear that is more fitted to the body. Sizes may vary between manufacturers, so please check the size charts before purchasing.
If the clothes you buy do not fit, we will be happy to exchange the size for free.
