The Science Behind Merino Wool Scarves
To understand why you absolutely need to choose this type of luxury wool scarf for winter you need to first understand the science behind merino wool. This wool isn’t just sought after because it is so soft and snug. Merino wool is so popular because of the following natural characteristics;
A breathable fabric - Merino wool garments are very breathable due to the natural ability of the fibres to transport moisture from higher humidity areas to lower humidity areas. Basically, merino wool transports vapours created by your body as you heat up outwards to dryer environments where it dries off. This natural characteristic of the fibre keeps your skin nice and dry. In fact, the fabric can retain as much as 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet.
Natural cooling and heating - As the wool transports moisture and heat outwards to a dryer or cooler environment it naturally cools down the fabric, leaving you feeling nice and cool despite it being warm outside. Wool also naturally crimps in cold temperature more than any other type of fibre, which prevents heat from escaping your body when it is chilly outside. This characteristic naturally has an insulating effect and keeps you nice and warm.
Vapour wicking ability - All fabrics wick moisture by moving liquid through the fabric, but only merino wool scarves has the ability to wick liquid in its vapour form. Moisture from your body is moved away through the fabric before it has time to turn to sweat and dampen your clothes, keeping you nice and dry so you won’t catch a chill.
Odour resistant - The moisture managing capabilities of merino wool also assists in reducing bad odours in your clothing, which means that your scarves will smell fresh.
Itch-free - People who are sensitive to fabrics and itch easily will love a merino scarf because the diameter of the wool’s fibre is much smaller and more flexible and bends easily when pressed to your skin. This gives merino wool its soft and smooth feel.

What is Merino Wool?
The merino sheep is a highly prized breed, known for its coveted woollen coat. Originating from southwestern Spain, the merino sheep is now farmed all over the world and, most successfully, in Australia and New Zealand. Masters of the modern merino, Australia supplies all of our wool, which is then dyed and woven in Scotland. We use a jacquard loom technique to create our unique designs in small runs, so you can be confident our brand stays exclusive.
Amongst the finest (and most importantly softest) of wool, merino sheep produce locks of wool around 65 to 100 millimetres long. Merino is cherished for its high warmth, breathability and soft touch qualities, and is considered far superior to regular wool strains. Due to these properties, a merino garment can wick moisture from the body, keeping you dry. Its clever porous nature will allow excess heat to escape when you’re too warm, making it the best choice in winter warmer. The merino sheep’s coat has a natural anti-bacterial quality which helps prevent smells clinging to the fabric. This makes our merino wool scarves excellent companions to winter walking, skiing and other activities. Finer than regular wool, this lightweight fibre is not itchy or thick.
