Merino: Nature's Air con!
With a heatwave in the UK with highs of 34 degrees many people are looking for easy ways to cool down so why not start with your clothing? Introducing Merino Wool; Nature's very own equivalent to air con!
Merino sheep live in temperatures of up to 35°C and their clever coats are designed to keep the sheep cool and protected in the Summer meaning that when their coats are made into clothing we also get these benefits:
Merino wool is a clever fabric that reacts to your body temperature keeping you cool when it's warm and warm when it's cold. As its 100% natural it also highly breathable.
Merino Wool wicks moisture away from the skin which is evaporated from the fabric surface meaning you'll be kept dry and comfortable the whole day
The lanolin in merino wool prevents mildew and bacteria from building up on your clothing which means you'll be kept drier, cleaner and stink free!
Merino Wool has a UV factor of 30-50 UVP because the fibres absorb UV radiation adding a layer of protection against harmful rays.
On a hot Summer's day comfort is key and merino wool is exactly that; its super soft against the skin, isn't itchy like traditional wool and is hypoallergenic meaning it's great for people with eczema and allergies.
Although merino wool clothing tends to be more expensive than synthetic clothing it will last a lot longer meaning you won't have to repurchase every few months. Merino wool fibres can bend over 20,000 times without breaking so won't lose shape or get holes.
Not only is merino wool 100% natural it is also 100% biodegradable
