Merino Wool is one of the softest materials available, as comfortable and luxurious as cashmere. But how can any wool, a fabric long known for being itchy, be so soft?
The smaller and smoother the fiber, the softer the fabric. Traditional wool came from sheep with course coats whose wool fibers were thick and rigid, causing itching and irritation. The smooth fibers in wool from Merino Sheep are considerably different. Superfine Merino Wool fibers, like the kind we use to make Woolx (18.5 microns for our heavyweights and an even softer 17.5 Micron wool for our midweights and lightweights) won’t poke or scratch. These incredibly fine and smooth fibers bend easily at the lightest touch, creating a fabric that is soft, smooth, and comfortable enough to wear right next to the skin.
The inherent properties of Merino Wool create an all-natural material that performs as well as any technical synthetic fabric. Woolx Merino Wool – Flawless, comfort, performance, and design.
