The Science of Comfort: How Merino Wool Regulates Your Body Temperature

Merino wool's superpower lies in its natural ability to keep you just right, temperature-wise. Here’s the straightforward science behind it:

Fine Fibers: Merino wool's fibers are incredibly fine, making them soft against the skin and excellent at regulating temperature. They bend when in contact with the body, preventing the itchiness associated with coarser wools.

Moisture Management: It absorbs moisture from the skin and releases it into the air. This keeps you dry and prevents that clammy feeling, whether you're on a hike or in a meeting.

Breathability: Merino lets your skin breathe, adapting to your body’s needs. It helps you stay warm in cold weather by trapping air in its fibers, and cool in warm weather by allowing excess heat to escape.

Thermoregulation: This is where merino really shines. It reacts to changes in your body temperature, providing insulation when you’re cold and releasing heat when you’re warm.
