What makes Icebreaker stand out amongst the other thermals?

Merino Wool is:

Temperature Regulating

Merino is an active fiber which takes in factors such as the wearer's body temperature and external conditions. In cold conditions your merino thermals will keep you warm and in warm conditions they will keep you cool.

Moisture Resistant

Merino wicks moisture away from the skin and into the atmosphere meaning you'll be kept drier for longer. Merino can absorb up to 35% of its own weight before feeling wet!

 

Odour Resistant

The lanolin in merino wool prevents mildew and bacteria from building up on your clothing and any odour molecules are absorbed into the merino fibre stopping the build up on unpleasant odours. Great for if you need your thermals for a long trip!

UV Resistant

Merino wool have a UV factor of between 30 and 50 UVP because the fibres absorb UV radiation throughout the entire UV spectrum, adding a layer of protection against harmful rays.

Long Lasting

Although merino wool clothing tends to be more expensive than synthetic fibres 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.

Soft & Comfortable

Merino wool is super soft against the skin and unlike traditional wool it doesn't irritate or itch the skin. The merino fibres are so fine that when they come into contact with the skin they bend. Merino is also hypoallergenic meaning it's great for people with eczema and allergies.

FABRICS:

MERINO WOOL

Merino wool is an amazing sustainable fibre which is composed of a natural protein meaning it is biodegradable. The merino sheep produce a new fleece naturally every year and the farmers shear the sheep only in the summer to ensure the animals comfort, hygiene and mobility. The wool is ethically sourced and 100% made from nature.

EUCALYPTUS TENCEL

Eucalyptus Tencel (Lyocell) is a great fibre for clothing as its extremely soft against the skin, breathable and environmentally friendly. Eucalyptus trees are grown in responsibly managed forests and are cut rather than uprooted so the trees grow back quickly. The trees require little water to grow and the process of turning the eucalyptus wood into fibre has minimal impact on the environment. 99% of the chemical, water and waste is reused in the unique closed loop system which minimises the impact on the environment and conserves water and energy.
