Merino is an incredible natural fibre that has been used for hundreds of years and provides great benefits for active wear. Key benefits include temperature and moisture management. Merino also helps fight odour and is relatively soft.
The merino sheep is one of the world’s most ancient breeds of sheep and also one the toughest. Merino is an entirely natural fibre, grown all year round making it completely renewable.
Compared to traditional wool, merino is a smoother and finer fibre, which gives it a vastly superior texture and hand feel to traditional coarse wools. Additionally, the keratin found in merino has been proven by dermatologists to be beneficial to the softness of human skin.
Merino naturally regulates temperate by absorbing and releasing moisture, has anti-bacterial properties which reduce the build up of odors and is ultra breathable naturally wicking moisture away by allowing air to breathe.
Bamboo has key technical attributes suited perfectly to active wear. In addition to those of merino, bamboo provides a softer feel removing irritations and allergies to 100% merino with smoother/rounder fibres. Bamboo is also great at controlling odour-producing bacteria to keep it hygienic with no smell.
Bamboo contains a natural antibacterial agent and pesticide known as “Bamboo Kun”. This natural anti-bacteria has been tested to last for more than 50 washes, still retaining it’s function.
The end result of this process leaves the bamboo fabric with a silk and cashmere like softness, superior breathability and antibacterial properties. All of which are maintained and then blended with our super fine merino wool to create our Platinum Blend.
