Merino wool 70%
Zip Turtleneck 400 is a thicker mid-layer made from our own Ullfrotté Original 400 gram fabric. Zip Turtleneck 400 is good for colder conditions or when you dont plan to move about too much. Underneath, wear one of our thinner undergarments, such as Woolpower LITE or Ullfrotté 200, which have been designed for wearing nearest your body. By wearing Woolpower directly against your skin youll benefit most from merino wools qualities.
Zip Turtleneck 400 can also be worn as a thicker sweater over your normal daily clothes. It is slightly longer at the back to avoid gaps. The fabric is circular knitted and therefore has very few seams that can chafe. Seams are always the weakest link in a garment, so our clothes are very durable. The cuffs are elasticated and are also knitted in to the fabric.
The fabric is hardwearing and made of fine merino wool, polyamide and most of all air. The air in the fabric is really important as it insulates the heat that your body produces.
The clothes are manufactured entirely in Östersund, Jämtland from the yarn to the finished product. Our seamstresses sew an entire garment from start to end and move with it between the machines. When they are done and satisfied with the result, they sew their own nametag into the garment. Thats why you always know who has sewn your Woolpower sweater.
Wool is natures own functional fabric and so far, no man-made fibres have been able to replicate all the unique qualities of wool. The fabric doesnt smell bad if you sweat, for example. Whats more, it keeps you dry 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 sweater keeps you warm anyway. Its because of a chemical process within the wool called absorption heat. Ullfrotté Original can be washed at 60 degrees.
