The mid-layer, or soft shell, is usually a stretchy garment and a protective layer against cold or wet weather. Merino wool’s superior insulating properties make it the perfect fibre for mid-layer active wear and sports clothing.

MerinoPerform™ – mid-layer 

While the mid-layer garment’s key function is to protect the wearer from the cold, the garment must also breathe so as to prevent the body from feeling clammy and humid. Merino wool’s ability to absorb humidity created by the body and release it on the outside ensures the wearer experiences the best possible microclimate conditions.

Merino wool’s natural crimp makes it the ideal fibre for creating comfortable insulating fabrics which are light in weight, soft against the skin and has outstanding moisture buffering – a combination that cannot be duplicated by any other fibre.
