Sportwool fabric is a unique combination of science and nature
Since me Mam knitted me those school sweaters fashioned from the roughest barbed wire, I haven't been a wool fan. But two things have changed my mind
1) a 60 minute talk at the local Sheep and Wool Centre
2) trying on a Montane bionic T
Firstly, they are comfy, really comfy - which might just be the most important thing.
Secondly, as I learnt from my 60 minute talk, wool is amazing.
|Sportwool works with you to create a micro-climate.|
Wool is a living, breathing natural substance that is produced from protein keratin and is composed of multiple layers of interlocking molecules; it's complex, much more complex than synthetic fibre. And Sportwool uses the finest, softest wool.
Here's how it works as a baselayer. When Sportwool is worn against the skin it creates a micro-climate environment which draws moisture away from the skin. Even better, Sportwool electrically attracts moisture vapour and can take 30% of its own weight in moisture vapour before it starts to feel wet.
So as you can see from the thermal photo - the person on the left is much cooler than the sweaty guy on the right.
|SPORTWOOL stays cool and comfortable during and after physical activity.|
