We don't just love Merino because it's 100% natural. When it comes to running and riding, nothing beats Merino wool.
The secret behind our love affair isn't complicated at all, it's simply down to the amazing fabric.
Merino breathes and wicks away moisture because they are hydrophilic at one end and hydrophobic at the other; soaking up moisture like a sponge and releasing it away from the body.
Merino wool is naturally antibacterial and bacteria has a hard time sticking to it - so you can go a ride or two (or three) before you smell like it and your new favourite top needs to see a washing machine.
And unlike man-made fabrics, Merino will still regulate body temperature when it's wet - keeping you warm when it's cool and cool when it's warm. A bonus in the months when it can go from skin-tingling in the shade to beach weather over the crest of a hill.
