Merino wool jumpers are very stylish and soft and also merino wool blends are a very popular choice. The type of wool that a sheep produces varies by breed. Merino sheep produce wool that is very fine. Merino wool is thus considered the most valuable of wools. In our fibre blend collection you will find quite a few Irish knit sweaters have been blended using merino wool and the luxurious soft fleece of the cashmere goat. Living in the extremely cold climate of the Himalayas the cashmere goat evolved with the warmest fleece in the world. This fibre blend produces a sweater unlike anything else to feel and wear next to your skin.
Merino wool is naturally insulating and has a high warmth/weight ratio and will remain warm when wet making merino wool jumpers ideal for outdoor expeditions. To a certain degree, wool is considered water repellent. Small amounts of liquid, such as spills, light rain or snow, will stay on the surface or run off the fabric. Wool fabrics also wick moisture away from the skin, keeping the wearer dryer when sweating and cooler when hot. So if you enjoy the outdoors and are a keen walker or cyclist a merino wool jumper is exactly what you need to keep you comfortable and dry.
