The Merino wool fibre is simply incredible. Designed to insulate the Merino sheep against extreme conditions, the thick fleece locks in warmth during winter and protects from the sun to keep the animal cool in summer. And it will do the same for you. Merino wool is much finer than traditional wool and is technically more complex than man made, synthetic fibres. Merino fibres are water resistant, however it can also absorb and release up to ten times more moisture than synthetics leaving the wearer constantly warm and dry. All Icebreaker garments and accessories are easy care machine washable, or alternatively drycleanable if you prefer.
The unique layering system designed by Icebreaker is your secret to dealing with changing climates. A single Icebreaker protects you from the sun and still keeps you warm at night. Layer 2 or 3 pieces and you have a lightweight system that not only moves with you as though you are wearing one garment, but breathes in its entirety. Merino wool also shares the same building blocks as human skin – keratin. This is one of the reasons why Icebreaker feels so good against your skin. It’s the keratin in Merino wool that also makes Icebreaker naturally fire resistant.
A constant emphasis on design and innovation means styling and colours are up to the moment fashion wise, which means your Icebreaker can take you from the mountain to the street.
At the end of the day, what it boils down to is that the Icebreaker range is too good not to try. Start with one and see how you go.. We know you will be back for more.
