Advantages of merino wool

  1. It’s a natural and renewable fibre – one sheep is able to grow up to five pounds of wool a year.
  2. It helps regulate body temperature. When it’s cold it will insulate you, when it’s warm, it transports sweat away from your skin quickly.
  3. You will keep dry.
  4. It does not stink! Merino wool absorbs odour caused by bacteria making it great for travelling.
  5. Merino wool is soft because it’s superfine! It’s not prickly like other wool because it can’t stand up to the weight of itself.
  6. It’s biodegradable.
  7. Merino wool is fire resistant.
  8. It can provide UPF protection depending on how the fibres are spun and dyed.
