Proven out in a multitude of laboratory tests and anecdotal accounts, wool has shown to have superior thermal properties; able to maintain the wearer’s comfort in cold, warm and wet conditions; is highly effective at moisture vapor absorption; is naturally flame-retardant due to is high “limiting oxygen index;” offers UV protection ratings of UPF 30 or better, according to research from German dermatologist; is naturally anti-microbial and anti-static; and even resists staining due to its protective waxy coating.
Oh yeah, and let’s not forget that wool is a sustainable and recyclable component, as well, while fine-micron Merino wool has all but buried the association between wool and itchiness.
