WHY MERINO WOOL?
Wool is grown year-round by Australia’s 71 million sheep, consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass.
When a wool fibre is disposed of, it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Every year Australian sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.
SOFT AND COMFORTABLE
Merino wool fibres are extremely fine, enabling them to bend far more than traditional, coarser wool fibres. This makes Merino wool feel soft and luxuriously gentle next to your skin.
Natural elasticity helps Merino wool garments stretch with you, yet return to their original shape. So Merino wool clothing is ideal to wear when exercising.
Merino wool fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour then move it away to evaporate into the air. So Merino wool clothing is extremely breathable and less prone to clamminess and freezing!
Warm and cool
In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature. So it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot.
Because Merino wool can absorb moisture vapour, it tends not to create static electricity, helping it to drape beautifully and be less likely to cling uncomfortably to your body than other fabrics.
EASY TO CARE FOR
Merino wool fibres have a natural protective outer layer that helps prevent stains from being absorbed. And because Merino wool tends not to generate static, it attracts less dust and lint.
In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool is anti-microbial and can also absorb moisture vapour which means less sweat on your body. Merino wool even absorbs the odour molecules from sweat, which are only released upon washing.
Washing instructions : Hand wash and hang to dry.
"North45 has been well-tested by the younger MacMillans who stole them over this frigid Christmas/New Year's period for skiing in Mont-Sainte-Anne and Le Massif -- and they did extremely well!
"No itch" "Warmer and less soggy than fleece" were a couple of the comments but I can get more. About the only concern I had from my two kids was having only one pair of goggles matching the magnet. (They have several sets of goggles...)''
