Our Merino base layer is made of 100% Merino wool of midweight 190gsm to keep you very comfortable all year round.
Merino is the world’s finest wool and feels soft and lightweight, an ideal material for a base layer. Not only for its soft feel, but it is an incredibly thermoregulating. It offers excellent warmth for weight and thanks to its breathability, it is able to release warmth as needed to prevent overheating and it keeps you cool when conditions heat up. Merino can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and still maintain its ability to insulate, keeping you dry, warm and cosy. It is also naturally moisture-wicking, so it is able to draw perspiration away from the skin so you stay dry when working up a sweat. Merino is naturally antibacterial which provides odour resistance. Because merino resists odour, bacteria and stains, you don’t need to wash it as often or as rigorously as synthetics. Airing your merino overnight will usually freshen it for the following day. Thanks to its fine fibre, merino wool is incredibly elastic and able to retain its shape.
The many natural benefits of merino wool - its moisture wicking, insulating, temperature regulating, odour resistant, breathable and elastic qualities - provide exceptional comfort and protection in the outdoors. It is an ideal base layer in your functional outdoor clothing.
