Merino is natures technical fabric. It is one of the best next-to-skin layering fabrics that money can buy it regulates temperature in a wide range of conditions, is comfortable to wear and is 100% natural.
Cosy and warm in cold weather and wicks moisture efficiently as activity and temperatures rise so you don’t feel sweaty. Wools ability to absorb moisture vapour keeps you comfortable as you take a break or slow down. Merino is also quiet to wear with no rustling sound as you walk, plus it is flame retardant. More importantly its natural anti bacterial properties keeps odours low. On multi-day adventures it is simplicity to wash itself and fast drying, so hang out to dry and be ready for the next day.
Not all merino is the same. We have gone out of our way to find the best merino we can buy. Kepler only uses 100% natural Merino from non-mulesing farms and all but the padded boxes are New Zealand. Our merino is 17.2 to 17.5 micron making it some of the finest merino available and roughly 1/5th the diameter of human hair.
