Base Layer - MerinoPerform Next-to-skinPrint
The MerinoPerformTM Next-to-Skin range provides a high level of comfort, suitable for those seeking a sense of wellbeing in a broad range of leisure and sporting activities.
Since Merino fibres are finer than traditional wool they feel luxuriously soft next to the skin. And they work in total harmony with the wearer’s body due to their excellent natural elasticity so MerinoPerformTM Next-to-Skin garments are ideal for stretch-related activities such as gym workouts and yoga.
Merino absorbs moisture vapour produced by the wearer and releases it into the atmosphere later. This results in low humidity in the micro-climate between the skin and the garment, and therefore minimal sweating and increased comfort during exercise. Sweating is nature’s temperature regulator – the evaporation of liquid from the skin’s surface producing a very efficient cooling effect. Potentially, clothing can obstruct this process causing overheating. However, Merino actually speeds up the process of vapour transfer resulting in cooler muscles that are able to work at higher intensity levels.
Merino stays fresher for longer. Merino wool’s structure and moisture absorption properties reduce the tendency for build-up of body odours. Its complex structure locks the odour molecules within the fibre and only releases them on washing.
The ability to dissipate static electricity means that Merino garments have a reduced attraction to lint and fluff. They will also not cling uncomfortably to the wearer which synthetics often do during exercise, resulting in a more comfortable work out.
MerinoPerformTM Next-to-Skin garments can be machine-washed and tumble-dried, and their excellent elasticity helps them maintain their shape for longer.
