Why train in merino wool in summer?
Merino wool, from which we sewed products from the Active collection, is designed for sports at any time of the year, especially in summer. Thanks to its low weight and loose weave, it will be perfect for intense workouts and exercise in the heat. It will instantly absorb sweat from the skin, and then wick it away to the environment. The result? Your skin and clothing will stay dry! Merino wool will provide you with an optimal body temperature, because it adapts to the weather conditions - it retains heat or provides a feeling of coolness, thanks to the rapid removal of moisture. Merino does not absorb bad odors and does not allow bacteria to grow. All this makes training in wool in the summer pleasant and comfortable.
Complete the sporty look with our Rio sports top with our cycling shorts or short shorts. Be sure to see them in our store!
Why merino wool and not polyester?
You're probably wondering why professional athletes train in polyester and not merino wool. It's all about the weight of the fiber. In professional sports, hundredths of seconds count. Therefore, the weight of the garment is of great importance in this case. However, if you do not care about hundredths of a second during daily physical activity - merino wool in sports is unbeatable. It perfectly wicks away moisture, does not absorb odors and, in addition, is durable and very resistant to wear and tear. Our collection, we sewed from year-round wool, so you can easily train in our clothes also in extreme heat, exceeding 35 degrees!
Remember that wool knitwear will never be as tight as polyester or polyamide. No stress, trust nature.
A 100% wool garment has the right to be looser and not support the body, and during wear its fibers may gently stretch, but they will return to their place after washing.
