Why wear Merino Wool?
Minus33 Merino Wool regulates the amount of moisture on your skin by absorbing any moisture or sweat on your body. Then, the absorbed moisture evaporates out of the fabric into the atmosphere.
Wool fibers have a natural crimp, which creates air pockets that trap dead, warm air inside – right next to your skin.
Wool is a classic natural insulator, but is just as effective in warmer weather due to its rapid moisture wicking ability.
Naturally Odor Resistant
With less moisture comes less odor. Minus33 Merino Wool resists against microbes and odor, so foot fungus and smelly odor will NOT be a problem while wearing minus 33.
Despite what you've heard, Merino Wool is not an allergen. Recent studies show that merino wool is good for the skin and especially beneficial for those suffering from eczema.
Merino Wool has a low environmental footprint and naturally returns to the elements. Shear a merino sheep in the morning, and in the afternoon they’re happily nibbling their way towards renewing next season’s clip.
