Fibflx uses only two fabrics for the winter collection, cashmere and merino wool. All natural fibers, ethically sourced and made. Compared to regular wool, which comes from many different breeds of sheep, merino wool comes from merino sheep. Merino sheep graze the highlands of Australia and New Zealand, with temperatures ranging from -20°C to 35°C; so their fleece is an exceptional choice for all temperatures. Merino wool is much finer and softer than regular wool, and it is especially versatile and functional due to its amazing natural properties.
The Perfect Base Layer
Merino wool is not irritating or scratchy on our skin, which makes it the perfect fabric to wear as a base layer. Compared to other common fabrics used, such as polyester or nylon, merino wool is the only natural option. It’s also more breathable and moisture wicking, so you can even wear merino wool on your sporting adventures. These properties can add comfort and warmth when you’re sweating, and prevent you from feeling icky. Another amazing characteristic of merino wool is that its odor resistant because it’s anti-bacterial. This means your merino wool thermals will keep you smelling great even when you’re sweating. On top of that, the merino wool fabric is full of small air pockets, this is perfect for maintain your body temperature. So during outdoor sports where you start and stop, like snowboarding, it’ll keep you warm when you slow down, and its breathability makes sure you don’t overheat when you’re sweating. Compared to synthetic materials, merino wool fiber is not as quick drying. But since it’s bacteria resisting, it allows for more wear between washes. Its incredible qualities still make merino wool undershirts (like our seamless turtleneck) the best choice for your base layer, regardless of if you’re lounging or exercising.
