Whether or not you actually make it to the slopes this winter, Perfect Moment’s latest range of Merino wool ski apparel is perfect both on-piste and off.
Luxury performance-driven skiwear brand Perfect Moment has joined forces with The Woolmark Company to release a range of sustainably minded gear that fuses fashion and function.
Perfect Moment has always used the best-quality materials to create its collections - high performance and function are central to the design of each piece, in addition to cutting-edge fashion and style. No stranger to Merino wool, the natural fibre forms a signature part of Perfect Moment’s winter collection, not only loved for its breathability and superior warmth benefits but it's moisture-wicking and odour resistance too. Now, each piece of Merino wool knitwear has been accredited with the Woolmark stamp of approval, passing independent testing for quality assurance and recognising each garment has been made with longevity and natural performance in mind.
Merino wool skiwear
Sourcing the finest technical yarn from Woolmark licensee Sudwolle, Perfect Moment’s knitwear - including jumpers, jumpsuits, leggings and base-layers - delivers the ultimate in next-to-skin softness without comprising performance.
The Woolmark Company has worked closely with Perfect Moment to expand the brand’s outer-wear range, sourcing technical Merino wool woven fabric for jackets and ski suits that is resistant to both wind and rain to protect the wearer from the elements and when blended with recycled polyester enhances both durability and protection to the wearer in frostier conditions.
"This partnership with The Woolmark Company showcases our values; premium materials that are fashionable and functional," says Perfect Moment Creative Director Jane Gottschalk. "In our AW21 collection we launched Technical Merino wool woven fabric for our outerwear jackets and ski suits, which not only creates a statement (and warmth) on the slopes but is also durable for snow, wind and rain. This partnership is exciting for the future of wool technology and outerwear designs for both streetwear and the slopes."
3 reasons to choose Merino wool for the snow
The original performance and eco fibre, Merino wool has long been used on ski slopes across the world. Here’s the top 3 reasons why Merino wool makes the best snow clothes.
- An active fibre, Merino wool breathes with you and its superior thermoregulating and moisture-wicking properties keep you warm and dry as the snow falls.
- Merino wool’s odour resistance means your base-layers and wool socks can be worn for multiple days before needing a wash, saving you luggage space and awkward glances apres-ski.
- Layer-up with Merino wool base-, mid- and outer-layers – combined with Merino wool socks and beanies – for the foundation of comfort and warmth.

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.
