Merino utilizes nature as it's wash board, and is naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-static. It disinfects itself in fresh air and is naturally resistant to odours. Merino fibre has a protective film that prevents stains from being absorbed. It’s static-resistant environment also means it picks up less grime from the air. Many outdoorsmen believe wool to be an itchy material, unwanted against the skin. Merino wool is a completely different fabric than traditional wools, thanks to those superfine fibres that Merino sheep manufacture. It’s smooth, silky-soft, and comfortable even against the most sensitive skin.
