WizWool Grid Strick are knitted fabrics consisting of a mixture of unique, natural (merinowool) and synthetic fibers. With this two-component knit, every single fiber is placed where it can perform best.

The material on the inside of the hood is woven like a grid, which spreads sweat over a large area and transports it to the outside. This makes it dry faster. 


MERINO WOOL

A highly functional natural fiber from merino sheep. They have the following properties:

  • moisture transport and degradation in merino wool
    wool is the strongest water-absorbing natural fiber (30% - chemical fiber only about 5% of its own weight), depending on the chemical treatment the wool has been exposed to, for example chlorination. The ability to absorb moisture is an important functional property of wool, but perhaps even more important is the ability to break down this moisture. This happens within the wool structure through hydrogen bonds that build up. If the inside is more humid than the outside of the wool, it is absorbed by the wool and conducted outwards until there is a balance on both sides. This creates a comfortable fit - the wearer stays dry.
  • Heat insulation and absorption heat with merino wool
    Due to the special structure of the fiber, a lot of air is bound in the fiber and thus promotes heat insulation as it Air reduces the heat exchange. If moisture is absorbed in the hydrogen bonds of the fiber, a chemical reaction takes place between the fiber and the water molecules. This reaction generates heat and continues until the fibers are saturated with water molecules.
  • Self-cleaning properties of merino wool
    The wool core consists of chemically resistant and less resistant cell types that are connected in a liana shape. If moisture gets into the core, one fiber swells up more than the other - friction occurs and thus a mechanical self-cleaning effect.
  • Antibacterial and odorless in merino wool
    The creatine in the wool has an antibacterial effect, as it naturally breaks down bacteria on the skin and thus makes them bad Prevents odors. Bacteria are favored by moist surfaces - the water-repellent properties make formation considerably more difficult and the material also remains relatively dry on the outside.

Due to the natural lanolin content in merino wool, it has self-cleaning and antibacterial features. After repeated washing with commercially available detergents, merino wool loses its natural lanolin and its self-cleaning and antibacterial property. All other properties are retained. Therefore our tip: Wash with special detergents suitable for merino wool (e.g. Grangers Merino Wash).
