Details

Freeriding starts with the first layer of clothing, since this is what determines whether the overall clothing system will work as expected. We've put our trust in merino wool in every layer. This natural fiber is great in every season of the year, but it is simply fantastic for winter sports when body temperature fluctuates between heavy perspiration during periods of activity and rapid cooling when at rest. Merino wool has the unique ability to absorb large volumes of moisture yet not feel wet. It transports moisture into the fiber core and then slowly releases it. At the same time, it helps regulate temperature and prevents unpleasant odors.

We use 100% MERINO WOOL for our ROCK‘N‘WOOL collection. These products have a material weight of 185 G/M², making them highly versatile from the beginning of winter to the end, even when temperatures take a dip. From short sleeves to long sleeves and from boxers to short pants, this collection is characterized largely by colorful designs, fun features, loose cuts, and - of course - the highly functional merino fiber.

Information on Merino wool

Merino wool vs. synthetic materials

Merino wool is common in high-end, performance sportswear and commands a premium over synthetic fabrics. Compared to synthetic fabrics with a simple fiber structure, Merino wool fibers are soft and very thin. It has higher breathability and moisture regulating rates. In contrast to polyester, Merino wool feels warm and comfortable, and it retains warmth even when wet. It is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. And in contrast to other materials, it has excellent antibacterial properties and it’s odor neutralizing. You can simply leave your product to air, and you’ll be able to wear it again the next day.

Merino wool vs. wool in general

Several properties contribute to Merino's popularity for exercise clothing. At first, Merino is one of the softest types of wool available with an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. The fine wool fibers are so thin that they are even below the human itching threshold. Second, Merino wool fibers provide warmth, without overheating the wearer. It will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer because of the high thermo-regulating qualities. The more grams of Merino per m², the better for cold weather performance.

Instructions for washing

  • Machine wash at 30 or 40°
  • Avoid dry cleaning and dryers.
