Traditional wool may be warm, but it itches like crazy; it's bulky, heavy, and takes forever to dry. Artificial fibers like polyester are lightweight, easy care, and usually non-itch, but they can also be stinky, poorly insulating, and flammable. You could choose cotton instead, but you'll freeze when you get wet in the cold. The solution is a performance fiber invented by nature and engineered for people. Merino wool combines the best qualities of traditional wool, synthetics, and cotton. It's soft and non-itchy; it's warm in the cold and cool in the heat; it breathes, and it has a miraculous ability to ward off stinkiness.
Fire-safe: wool is one of the least flammable of fibers. It's self-extinguishing, and, unlike synthetics, it won't melt and stick to your skin.
Sun-safe Icebreaker merino has a UPF rating of at least 50, which is considered the ultimate in sun protection. That's higher than cotton and most synthetics.
Easy-care: Icebreaker merino is machine washable, dries quickly (air dry only-not in a tumble dryer), and bounces back into shape without ironing, making it ideal for travel.
Anti-static: Merino is resistant to static electricity, which means it won't cling or rustle.
