HOW DOES IT KNOW?
Sheep have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years and are able to live in the freezing high alpine slopes of Siberia as well as the blistering heat of the Australian outback. Their wool coats both shelter them from the cold and protect them from the heat. Merino wool base layers do the same against our skin–they regulate body heat much better than any synthetic fabric can and will keep you comfortable in a wider range of temperatures. When it is warm, the wool transports moisture and warm air away from the skin and disperses it into the air. When it is cold, the wool traps the warm air and keeps it close to the skin.
“They can hear you twice, see you once, but if they smell you, they’re gone.” Every hunter knows the importance of minimizing human odor and there’s no fabric better at keeping B.O. to a minimum than wool. Wool absorbs 30% of its weight in moisture which then passes through the material and is released into the air instead of remaining on the skin. Transporting the moisture away from the skin and completely through the fabric is the main reason wool is so successful at controlling odor. Nylon absorbs only 4.5% and polyester a measly .4%. With these synthetic fabrics, moisture remains on the skin and the fabric creating bacteria on the skin’s surface. The result is odor.
Wool absorbs light and has no UV reflection.
Wool doesn’t flap in the wind, doesn’t shear when you walk or crackle when it’s cold. Wool in motion creates no sound.
