Nothing works quite like Merino Wool. I live in it both Summer and Winter and use it along side Paramo and cannot recommend it enough! By using a small blend of polyamide Woolpower have kept the weave loose allowing it to retain all its properties unlike other manufacturers who use 100% merino but knit it really tight to make it last longer. The Polyamide keeps your woolpower garment long lasting whilst the pre-shrunk merino allows you to wash it up to 60degrees! Its not reccomended to tumble dry but I have numerous times and haven't had a problem.
So far, no man-made fibres have been able to replicate all the unique qualities of wool. The garment doesn't smell bad if you sweat, for example. It also keeps you dry if you get wet as the wool can absorb up to 30 per cent of its own weight in moisture without even feeling damp. But if you really get wet, the clothes will keep you warm anyway. It's because of a chemical process within the wool called absorption heat.
