Merino wool, combined with a nylon core, is the material of choice for all outdoor enthusiasts. This innovative construction combines all the positive properties of merino wool, along with the durability and strength of nylon, to create a material that is comfortable, breathable, and far more resistant to damage than is typical of fine wool materials.
Merino wool is a type of wool that comes from merino sheep, a breed known for its soft, fine, and warming wool fibers. Merino wool has several unique properties that make it an extremely popular material in the outdoor world. It wicks moisture fantastically, keeping its wearer dry. It has thermoregulating properties that keep you warm in cold conditions and fresh in warm weather. And merino wool is naturally antibacterial, meaning it can resist the growth of bacteria and other microbes in its structure, so it doesn't smell even after multiple wears.
The addition of a nylon core, around which the merino wool fibers are wrapped, particularly elevates the durability and strength of this material. Nylon is a synthetic fiber that is known for its high tensile strength, resistance to wear and tear, and ability to hold its shape. By adding a nylon core to merino wool, the resulting material is even more resistant to pilling, tearing, and other types of damage.
