Why Merino Wool?
Absorption - Merino wool fights cold weather, and keeps you warm even if you get wet or humid.
Insulation - Clothes made from merino wool are good insulators, because of the wrinkled merino fibres. This structure causes millions of small air pockets to hold on to the body heat, creating a buffer against the cold.
Regulation of temperature - Merino wool naturally controls temperature. It regulates by absorbing and releasing moisture. If it gets hot, the wool will make sure to cool itself down by evaporation.
Odour control - Merino wool has a constant and natural resistance to the growth of microorganisms. The wool can be used for several days without starting to smell anything, if the fabric is dried and hung out for air after use.
Healthy microclimate - The merino wool's ability to regulate temperature and humidity, as well as its antibacterial finesse, will help create a healthy microclimate for your skin - which in turn can soothe eczema and other skin problems.
Woolmark - Devold is licensed by Woolmark and is permitted to use the symbols on their products. The symbols guarantee that the products meet the quality requirements established and controlled by The Woolmark Company. More about Woolmark
Easy-care - Merino wool is easy to care for. Most of the wool from Devold can be washed in the machine. The "Easy-Care" process prevents shrinkage and other unwanted surprises.
UV Protection - Wool also absorbs UV radiation, providing a natural protection against the sun. The strength may vary from UPF 20 to 50+ depending on the density and colour of the fabric.
