The benefits of Merino
Kepler is made using only the finest sustainably sourced non-mulesed New Zealand merino.
Merino wool is a natural material with properties that make it ideal for the changeable conditions you will experience during mountain activities, maybe that's why New Zealand Merino sheep look so content strutting around their hillsides.
When you are on a mission you don't want to be changing your layers with every turn in the weather. When it is cold Merino keeps you warm by trapping small pockets of air within its fibres. When its warm the same fibres will help to whisk moisture away from your skin so it can evaporate back into the water cycle! If you have been trapped in your garment for several days the antibacterial properties of a chemical called lanolin will help you stop ponging.
A merino wool vest won't make you fitter, it won't make you go faster, but it will help you feel more comfortable when you find yourself in uncomfortable circumstances.Read less
