With a passion for comfort and an eye for quality, Sherpa is proud to have found the very best Merino, and right in our own backyard! From the remote farmlands of Australia comes our 100% Australian Merino wool, a natural wonder and pioneer of the clothing industry. Offering our most innovative comfort technology, this Merino long sleeve top is soft, odour-free, thermo-regulating and quick-dry, all thanks to the fine fibres of our Merino sheep and our hard working Australian farmers.
The benefits for buying natural Merino wool are endless. Made with much finer fibres (18.5 micron) than that of other wool varieties, Merino provides a soft, non-itch finish impossible to beat and packed with technical advantages. As a tight fitting garment, moisture management and breathability is fundamental, which is why Merino wins every time. Every wonder why sheep always look so calm and collected and downright huggable, regardless of the weather? In the cold, Merino keeps warm thanks to its finely crimped structure, which retains insulating air. In the heat, the wool has a cooling effect due to its high breathability.
The surface of the fibre is dirt and water repellent, protecting skin from moisture and debris, and is stink-free, even during the most sweaty of days! The inside of the fibre can absorb water without feeling wet, providing excellent moisture control and quick dry properties, while retaining its thermo-regulating properties, unlike cotton. It's also extremely easy to care for, naturally stain resistant, and provides great UV protection under the Australian sun. No time to wash it between uses? Sling it over a camp chair and watch the ultimate air drying in action!
