Merino Wool The Merino wool comes from Merino sheep, a fine wool breed of sheep that provides the most high-quality wool. Outstanding characteristics of fine merino wool are marked uniformity and high elasticity. In addition, it’s light and soft texture provides a scratch-free comfort. Due to the strong curling of Merino wool fibers, it is caused air pockets that provide a very effective temperature control and a very good breathability.
Acrylic Acrylic fiber is a synthetic fiber that closely resembles wool in its character. According to the definition of the ISO (International Standards Organization) and BISFA (International Synthetic Fiber Standardization Office), fibers which contain a minimum of 85% acrylonitrile in their chemical structure are called "Acrylic Fibers". Acrylic fiber is composed of acrylonitrile and a comonomer. The comonomer is added to improve dyeability and the textile processability of the acrylic fiber. Acrylic fiber can be used 100% alone, or in blends with other natural and synthetic fibers.
