Woolpower's popular Lite merino in Pine Green. This is one of our GREEN STAR PRODUCT, click on the link above to read our review.
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.
80% Merino Wool
Woolpower LITE is our thinnest fabric. It is a cool and comfortable material that is best worn nearest the body. LITE is tight knitted and therefore cooler, even though it actually contains more wool than our undergarments made of Ullfrotté Original. LITE is good for using in slightly warmer conditions, as the fabric helps to cool down your body. But it also keeps you warm when its cold out.

LITE is sewn by our seamstresses in Östersund, but the fabric is knitted in Norrköping before that. Our seamstresses sew an entire garment from start to end and move with it between the machines. When the garment is ready, they sew their own nametag into it. Thats why you always know who has sewn your Woolpower undergarment.
Lengthwise seams which are placed further back for optimal comfort. The short sleeves have raglan seams to prevent rub when carrying a backpack. Longer back to prevent gaps.
Woolpower LITE is a cool year-round layer that can be worn next to the skin. It keeps you warm when its cold and cool when its warm.
The fabric used in the LITE range is knitted in Norrköping and then sewn by our seamstresses in Östersund.
The seamstresses sew an entire garment from start to finish, and mark the clothes they sew with their own nametag.
No other man-made fabric has all the great qualities of wool.
We take our wool from merino sheep that graze in the Argentinian part of Patagonia and Uruguay, and it is mulesing free.
The fabric doesnt smell bad if you sweat. Wool is self-cleaning and breaks down the bad-smelling bacteria from the skin. Thats why it doesnt need to be washed so often.
Wool fibres can absorb up to 30 per cent of their own weight in moisture before even feeling damp.
Even if the material gets damp it continues to keep you warm anyway.
Woolpower clothes can be washed at 60 degrees.
Woolpowers undergarments dont itch and feel soft and comfortable against your skin.
