Compared to conventional wool, merino wool is much finer and softer, which gives the material its unique feel and prevents it from scratching the skin. The fur of merino sheep is naturally antibacterial, breathable, quick-drying and temperature-regulating. These natural properties can also be transferred to merino knitwear. Similar to cashmere, merino wool does not need to be washed – letting it air out overnight is perfectly sufficient. The noble raw material is extremely sustainable, dimensionally stable and durable, which makes knitwear made of merino a long-lasting companion.
