Merino Wool Baselayers

Merino Wool Baselayers

OUREA men's and women's merino wool baselayers are designed and manufactured in the UK from highest quality merino wool yarns imported from New Zealand.

Why do we use merino wool:

  • Merino is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. The wool provides some warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture (sweat) away from the skin, a phenomenon known as wicking. The fabric is slightly moisture repellent (keratin fibers are hydrophobic at one end and hydrophilic at the other), allowing the user to avoid the feeling of wetness.
  • Wool absorbs water (up to 1/3 its weight), but, unlike cotton, wool retains warmth when wet by allowing the moisture to move away from the skin to the atmosphere, a process known as wicking, thus helping wearers avoid hypothermia after strenuous workouts (climbs) or weather events.
  • Like most wools, merino contains lanolin, which has antibacterial properties.
  • Merino is one of the softest types of wool available, due to finer fibers and smaller scales.
  • Merino has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio compared to other wools, in part because the smaller fibers have microscopic cortices of dead air, trapping body heat similar to the way a sleeping bag warms its occupant.
