The merino 230 competition t-shirt is made for extremely challenging winter activities at low temperatures. The polyamide admixture does not reduce the properties of the Tasmanian wool. Thanks to this connection, clothing is very comfortable and does not restrict movement. The material is woven in the form of ribbing, which gives great flexibility and freedom of movement. Developed on the basis of body-mapping technology, which means that each part is knit in different ways and weights. Thanks to this, the 230 competition guarantees faster sweat and warmth wherever it is needed.
The basis for maximum protection at extremely low temperatures is the selection of a quality thermal clothing. For this reason, this functional thermal underwear is made of high quality Tasmanian wool merino. This material heats and keeps heat at low temperatures. In the event of sudden warming or heavy performance, it is pleasantly cool. Reliably removes moisture from the body and evaporates it into the air. The sheep's wool perfectly regulates the temperature and reliably drains sweat from the skin. The material is highly rigid and resistant to damage or destruction.
80% merino wool + 17% polyamid +3% elastan

This product is ideal for handwashing, we recommend washing at max 30 ° C. When rinsing it is sufficient to gradually lower the water temperature so no precipitation or deformation occurs.Then wrinkle gently and dry in a horizontal position to avoid pulling out the material.
Washing in washing machine
We recommend that you only wash on a wool program that respects a more gentle wash.
Use fine detergent designed for wool, both for hand washing and washing.
Do not dry the product on heater, If the heating exceeds 30 ° C (which is quite common), the water contained in the knit is also heated above 30 ° C and the product shrinks in the same way as in the case of inappropriate washing.
During drying in a dryer we recommend using intelligent woolen balls to absorb moisture, reduce static charge, ease ironing, and even fulfill the softening function. They are also usable out of the drier so you can put them to a basket with laundry for a short duration, where they can also absorb moisture in the meantime.
Do not use fabric softener!
Washing in warmer water (more than 30 ° C) and long machine washing will spoil the product.
This degraded product can not be reclaimed.
Sheep wool is one of the oldest textile materials, along with silk from China and flax from Egypt. The sheep and the dog were the first friends of man. The sheep could feed a man and warm him up during the harsh winters. Traditional woolen materials still have an irreplaceable position in our closets today because of their unique properties, which no artificial material has ever surpassed.
Wool has the natural ability to transport moisture away from the body into the environment. It can absorb water up to 35% of its own weight. Once the ambient humidity is reduced, the water starts to evaporate again into the air. So the feeling of wet clothes comes much later than with other materials.
When wool absorbs moisture, it also generates heat. And you can feel pleasant dry heat despite bad weather. Conversely, when the ambient temperature rises, the wool stops generating heat. It is therefore an active thermoregulation that the wool is capable of. Due to the high lanolin content, the wool is self-cleaning. Wool fibers stimulate movement in the air and begin to expand and contract dynamically. In combination with lanolin, dirt will come to the surface itself.
