MERINO WOOL HUB
Merino wool has evolved over hundreds of years to become extremely versatile and technical. As an active fibre, Merino can react to changes in body temperature to ensure you keep cool when the temperature rises or stay warm when it drops.
Wool fibres provide natural protection from UV radiation and are also super absorbent. This means they are highly-effective at moving moisture away from your skin, thereby regulating your core temperature and preventing odours created by the build-up of bacteria.
100% natural, 100% biodegradable, 100% renewable.
Wool is the most reused and recycled fibre on the planet, it also requires less energy and water to produce. We love its durability, too, helping us craft a wide range of sports apparel that is all built to last.
And when you dispose of it, what next? Well, wool biodegrades rapidly and produces essential elements for the growth of organisms as part of natural carbon and nutrient cycles.
EASY TO CARE FOR
Wool is often considered difficult to care for. This couldn’t be further from the truth, particularly when it comes to Merino. Naturally odour resistant and stain resistant, Merino does not need to be washed as often as other kit. And when it does, it can go into the machine with your other clothes.
As for drying, the air is all Merino wool needs – the same as your other dhb kit. It is also wrinkle resistant and naturally elastic, ensuring Merino garments retain their original shape and look as good on their 50th wear as their did their fifth.
