Men’s Kepler Premium New Zealand Merino Wool nature's technical layering fabric

As nature’s own technical fabric, merino wool is an insulating base layer that also happens to be anti-microbial, temperature regulating and moisture-wicking. It acts as a natural deodorant for stink-free days where a shower might be a couple of days away and is great for layering in the cold or keeping cool during the day.

Merino base layers are popular on multi-day hikes or bikepacking adventures because they’re easy to wash and fast-drying. They’re perfect for underneath your technical layers as well as inside your sleeping bag for a good night’s sleep.

Quality and sustainability


Our Kepler clothing is only made from certified non-mulesing farms in New Zealand which ensures there’s no finer merino out there than ours.
