Merino wool Merino wool is a particularly high-quality form of wool. It is obtained from merino sheep and is characterized by its particular fineness and softness.

Positive characteristics:

  • Merino wool has excellent thermal regulation. That means, it regulates the skin breathing and oxygen exchange by itself.
  • The natural structure of the wool fiber creates air spaces - the air can circulate and the skin can breath, stimulating the metabolism. The moisture is very well wicked away from the body.
  • Merino wool can absorb moisture in about 1/3 of its own weight without feeling damp; for example, moisture is transported to the outside 7 times faster than with cotton.
  • Due to the animal protein fibers, germs and bacteria do not find a breeding ground and can not multiply.


  • does not scratch the skin
  • insulates well against cold and also heat
  • transports moisture
  • can absorb up to one third of its dry weight in moisture
  • cools by evaporative cooling at warm temperatures
  • warms even when damp
  • does not absorb smell, therefore needs to be washed less often
  • keeps the fit
  • flame resistant
  • has a natural sun protection factor of up to 50
  • ldoes not charge electrostatically
  • biologically degradable
