The Benefits of Merino Fusion Base Layers

Long-standing and popular yarns, Superfine Merino wool and Schoeller polypropylene, have separately dominated the high end of technical thermal wear throughout the world with their superior performance abilities and comfort traits. Merino, particularly in its low micron versions, enables insulation in the cold (even when wet), maintains odour-free stability even after many days of constant wear and provides an ultra-soft touch to skin. Polypropylene is a highly engineered synthetic fibre that provides extraordinary insulation during physical exertion and wicks moisture away from skin due to its zero moisture retention capability, therefore keeping a person warm and dry during high aerobic activities. Materials from these fibres are the mainstay in base layer clothing used in sports and activities including skiing, bush walking, sailing, running and cycling along with similar and related activities including travel and casual. Now these famous nature-made and man-made yarns have been woven together by Wilderness Wear to form MerinoFusion, a hybrid that enables the best of both worlds, and are the basis for a new product range of the same name.

Now available in four weights, Ulta 100gsm (new), 160gsm, 190gsm and 300gsm. MerinoFusion garments have been tested in a variety of settings and activities – in Australia and off-shore, on mountains, roads, trails and the bush – all with stellar results in terms of performance and comfort.

The Superfine Merino and polypropylene yarns used in MerinoFusion garments observe global ecological guidelines along the complete production and procurement chain:
• EXP – a revolutionary new process that enables the wool to remain machine-washable without the use of chlorine.
• bluesign® – approved fabric label designates textiles that were produced in compliance with especially high environmental standards.
• Öko-Tex Standard 100 – the world’s most widespread textile-label for textiles tested for harmful substances.
