Woolmark® & Merino Wool

Merino wool is a 100% renewable natural fibre that efficiently regulates body temperature by trapping warm air next to your skin in cold conditions. Merino is also excellent for moisture management, absorbing perspiration away from your skin so you won’t feel damp during activity. It is highly breathable, quick drying and resists odour and bacterial build up, keeping you feeling fresh. Merino is static free and retains its shape due to the natural elasticity of its fibres. Mountain Designs uses wool that is certified by Woolmark®, the global authority on wool, providing assurance that the product is of the highest fabrication quality.
