What is Merino Wool?

There are many reasons why choosing a few key pieces for your wardrobe with a merino wool blend is important. You can thank us later when they become some of your most used items for any season. Merino wool comes from the Merino breed of sheep that originated from Spain and now is domesticated in Australia. This amazing breed of sheep produces the wool that has an excellent warmth to weight ratio and has a softness that you won’t find with other wool and wool blends.

Merino sheep provide the finest fiber for the softest wool. Our Merino wool blend is sourced from sheep that grow their wool under extreme conditions, making their wool the best suited for year-round comfort. Coolibar’s technical fabric blends wool and viscose from Bamboo with a hint of Spandex for fit and washability.

Unlike other merino fabrics, the Coolibar merino wool blend is unique and perfect for those trying to stay protected from the sun. Our blend is as soft and lightweight as your favorite t-shirt, beautifully machine washable and naturally anti-bacterial to manage odor. It is also UPF 50+ rated meaning that it blocks 98% of both UVA and UVB rays. We created this blend especially for those who want to enjoy the outside comfortably.

We want to go where ever you want to go! When creating this blend because we wanted to keep it lightweight and make sure that it breathed and insulated at the same time, making our Merino Wool Collection perfect for year-round temperature changes. It also is not uncommon for a user to wear garments for multiple days in a row, this makes any of our items perfect for those who travel lightly. If you are taking a trip to Europe this winter, the natural anti-bacterial nature of merino wool will make your packing goals much easier.
