Benefits of Natural Merino Wool: - Thermoregulation - Breathability - Keeps its shape well - Wool wicks moisture away from the skin (absorbing up to ~30% of its own weight and still feeling dry to the touch) - Anti-static and anti-bacterial properties - Natural flame- and UV-resistance - Less laundry (airing is usually enough when not stained) - Less likely to absorb odours

Why Natural Merino Wool?
Natural merino wool fibres are amazing, active fibres that react to body temperature changes. There are tiny pockets of air within and between the merino fibres. This air does insulate us and our children from the cold. When our bodies get too warm, the Natural Family Woollies will release heat and moisture. The thermoregulation that pure merino wool offers is functional and wonderful all year round. To recap some of the beautiful benefits of merino wool: good insulation from both cold and heat, breathability, UV-protection, antistatic properties, fire resistance, superb warmth without bulk, beautiful colour rendering, perfect fit and all of it OekoTex 100, class I certified, completely safe without chemicals, naturally and sustainably.
