Merino wool is an all-natural fibre with some big benefits, you can wear this wonderful fibre all year round in extreme conditions, making it perfect for the outdoors, summer or winter. We love it for a whole host of reasons:
Nice and natural, Merino breathes and absorbs moisture better than any other fibre
Unlike synthetic fabrics, Merino doesn’t pick up the smell of perspiration
It has a great weight to warmth ratio
The tightly packed, fine fibres mean even lightweight Merino offers great warmth
It’s a renewable resource
Created by the spinning of wool from Merino sheep, it’s a sustainable option
Soft and sustainable Merino wool.
As well as being super soft and perfectly suited to a whole variety of landscapes and activities, Merino wool is a more sustainable choice than many other fabrics. Merino is recyclable and doesn’t shed microplastics when washed, like some synthetic alternatives. Its odour resistant characteristics also mean it needs to be washed less often than other fabrics, reducing its everyday impact on the environment. It’s important to team FINDRA to use ethically sourced materials, and we advocate slow fashion, that’s why we choose wool as a key raw material for our clothing.
