Merino wool is a magnificient material: even those who get all itchy from regular wool, can typically enjoy the feel of Merino, thanks to its smooth structure. Merino apparel evens out fluctuations in temperature, meaning you won't feel cold when you stop for a break. It also warms you up even when a bit damp.
Unlike technical materials, Merino wool requires washing relatively seldom: it is naturally odour-resistant and stays comfortable in extended use.
When washing your Merino apparel, follow the instructions on the package or wash tab. In most cases this includes a 30 or 40 degree temperature and wool detergent which treats the lanoline in your apparel with care while getting rid of any grime.
All Merino apparel sold by Scandinavian Outdoor is mulesing-free.
