The synthetic portion increases durability and prevents shrinkage of the wool. The material is soft, breathable, odor reducing.
A highly functional natural fiber from merino sheep. It is characterized by the following properties:
- Moisture transport and degradation in merino wool
Wool is the strongest water-absorbing natural fiber (30% - man-made fiber only about 5% of its own weight), depending on the chemical treatment to which the wool was subjected, for example, chlorination. The ability to absorb moisture is an important functional property of wool, but perhaps even more important is the ability to remove that moisture. This occurs within the wool structure through hydrogen bonds that build up. If the inside is wetter than the outside of the wool, it is absorbed by the wool and transferred to the outside until there is equilibrium on both sides. This creates a comfortable wearing sensation - the wearer stays dry.
- Thermal insulation and absorption heat in merino wool
Due to the special structure of the fiber, a lot of air is bound in the fiber and thus favors thermal insulation, as this air reduces heat exchange. When moisture is absorbed into the hydrogen bonds of the fiber, a chemical reaction occurs between the fiber and the water molecules. This reaction generates heat and continues until the fibers are saturated with water molecules.
- Self-cleaning properties in merino wool
The wool core consists of chemically resistant and less resistant cell types, which are connected to each other in a liana form. When moisture enters the core, one fiber swells more than the other, creating friction and a mechanical self-cleaning effect.
- Antibacterial and odor-neutral with merino wool
The creatine in the wool has an antibacterial effect, as it naturally breaks down bacteria on the skin and thus prevents bad odors. Bacteria are favored by damp surfaces - due to the water-repellent properties, formation is made much more difficult and the material remains relatively dry on the outside.

Due to the natural lanolin content in merino wool, it has self-cleaning and antibacterial properties.
Our tip: Either wash with specially available detergents (e.g. Grangers Merino Wash). After repeated washing with commercially available detergents, merino wool loses its natural lanolin and its self-cleaning and antibacterial properties. All other properties remain intact.
