This fabric blends merino with the natural cooling properties of Tencel™, a fiber derived from sustainably grown eucalyptus.

This hybrid excels in hot and humid weather to keep you feeling cool and dry when the mercury rises.

weightless wool

We wrap ultra-thin merino fibers around a nylon filament to make this 150gsm fabric both lightweight and durable. This is our one-quiver, do-everything textile. Corespinning keeps merino as the only fiber next to skin, allowing nylon to increase the longevity of this all-season fabric without impacting its breathability or odor resistance. Weightless Wool combines the best of human innovation with the best of what nature has to offer.
