Tennis great Andy Murray returns to Wimbledon this summer competing in an innovative Merino wool performance kit.
The first-of-its-kind wool blend tennis apparel collection has been engineered with Merino wool using cutting-edge technology to enhance athletic performance.
“I’ve been testing the kit for a few months now and am really happy with how it feels and performs. I work closely with the designers on every piece and give regular feedback, for me, the technical performance is vital. It’s also very important the kit is sustainable and I like the fact it looks and feels a bit different.”
Merino wool is the world’s original performance fibre. No other fibre can match all of its natural benefits with exceptional breathability, thermoregulation and supreme softness next to the skin, helping players keep cool and comfortable on court.
The fibre’s excellent natural elasticity is ideal for stretching and the natural odour resistance abilities ensures players stay feeling fresher for longer. Importantly, it is also gentle on the planet due it being a 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre.
Layers of performance
Good for sheep, perfect for you. Whether you choose a base-layer, mid-layer or outer-layer - or a combination of all three - for your next adventure, you know Merino wool has got you covered.
Whether for cooling off in warmer weather, or battling the chill in colder climes, base-layers provide a protective inner shell between the body and the environment. In the summer, base-layers transfer moisture vapour away from the body to aid in evaporative cooling. In winter, they provide an additional layer of insulation.
Merino mid-layers protect from the cold, but breathe with your body to avoid getting hot under the collar. 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.
100% Merino wool that’s resistant to wind, rain, UV and fire – that’s the power of Merino. Merino wool outerwear offers the ultimate in protection no matter the elements, from valley deep to mountain high.
