Ever heard of Smart Wool? It's made from only the finest merino fiber. All the thicker fibers (over 30 microns) which may
cause itchiness are carefully removed.
The merino wool used in the manufacturing process comes from sheep
raised in the pristine environment of New Zealand, which
has no natural predators and is a perfect climate for excellent quality
These sheep are
raised free range in a wonderfully earth friendly environment.
Selective breeding is used to ensure that only the best quality fiber
goes into Smart Wool. Research and development funding goes towards
improving sustainable farming practices and environmentally friendly
The company is dedicated to the quality of their products and to animal welfare and they therefore pay a higher premium for the best quality raw materials which are prepared to their exacting standards.
The technology they use manages to eliminate shrinkage, making the
wool machine washable and dryable, just like superwash. They even
guarantee no itch!
The wool they use basically has the same attributes as
because that's what it is, but it has been treated so it won't shrink.
So - where can you get hold of this wonderful fiber? Well - I'm
afraid it's only available as ready-made clothing items. They do have
an incredible range of Smart Wool socks in wonderful colors, and
they also produce an excellent range of base layers.
You should definitely check them out - don't you deserve some anti-itch
socks and comfy underwear. After all...wool is comfortable year-round - cool in summer, warm in winter. What more could you want?
