What is Merino wool?
Merino sheep are regarded as having some of the finest and softest wool of any sheep. Merino wool has a much smoother final finish than a standard sheep's wool, and the fibers are non-abrasive. People who have sensitive skin also can wear Merino wool clothes.
Merino wool is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when we wear it against the skin. The wool provides some warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture away from the skin, a phenomenon known as wicking, which results in helping the wearer stay comfortable whether it is warm or cold weather. 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. Merino wool absorbs water and retains warmth even when it is wet. It contains lanolin, which has antibacterial properties, resulting in reduced human body odor. Moreover natural elasticity helps Merino wool garments to stretch and return to their original shape. So it is perfect to wear when you do exercise. However, Merino wool garments usually don’t dry off quicker than synthetic fabrics and their price is also more expensive.
Where is Merino Wool Produced?
Fine-wool sheep grow wool fibers with the smallest fiber diameter (usually less than 22 microns). Their fleeces tend to be the shortest in length and contain the most lanolin (wool wax or grease). Fine wool fleeces usually yield a lower percentage of clean fiber than longer, coarser fleeces. However, fine wool is the most valuable wool in the commercial market place because it is used to make the highest quality wool garments and has the most versatility of use. Fine-wool is less likely to itch when it is used in garments that are close to the skin. Merino Wool Underwear!
