The properties of merino wool means it is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. The wool provides some warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture away from the skin, a phenomenon known as wicking. The fabric is slightly moisture repellent allowing the user to avoid the feeling of wetness.
Like most wools, merino contains lanolin, which has antibacterial properties.
Merino is one of the softest types of wool available, due to finer fibers and smaller scales.
Merino has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio compared to other wools, in part because the smaller fibers have microscopic cortices of dead air, trapping body heat similar to the way a sleeping bag warms its occupant.
Made with 70% Merino wool and 30% Nylon in a regular length with elasticated top.
Hand wash with care, No bleach, cold rinse.
