What exactly is merino wool? A natural product such as down or cotton and a particularly high-quality form of new wool. New wool means that it is new wool that comes directly from the animal and not reused old textiles. The wool is obtained from Merino sheep, which originate in North Africa. As with all animal fibers or even with our human hair, the wool fiber consists of keratin, a fibrous protein.
Compared to conventional new wool, merino wool is particularly fine and soft. It lies softly on the skin and does not scratch. Its ability to keep you warm in winter and cool in the sun makes it an all-round talent. The material is also renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. So it's no wonder that merino wool is so popular these days. Especially in the field of outdoor clothing, wool is conquering wardrobes.
