Find Your Element – Nathan McCallum


Merino wool is an entirely natural fibre grown year-round. Particularly interesting about Merino wool is its inherent natural properties, such as its biodegradability, its softness to the skin, its natural drape, and its ability to draw moisture vapour away from the body. Coupled with technological advancements in the spinning, weaving and manufacturing of wool, Merino wool is the perfect material for active and sportswear, and continues to gain popularity in the market as its technical superiority is better understood.
