EDZ’s  quick guide to merino wool

Merino are a breed of sheep that produce a particularly fine grade of wool that is soft enough to be worn next to the skin comfortably.

Merino wool is warmer than cotton or synthetics.

Merino wool is a natural climate control material which regulates temperature.

Merino wool has excellent anti-odour properties so can be worn for many days before needing a wash – particularly useful when travelling.

Merino wool wicks and absorbs moisture and unlike cotton or synthetics will still help keep you warm even when damp.
