Woolpower Merino Ullfrotte Full Zip Jacket - 400

A seriously warm merino midlayer, designed for the Swedish and Norwegian armed forces and made in Sweden, where it gets really cold.

Woolpower is 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 satisfied with the result, they sew their own nametag into the garment. That’s why you always know who has sewn your Woolpower undergarment.

Ullfrotté Original 400, a terry-knitted fabric and our midweight version of Ullfrotté. 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.

Wool is nature’s own functional fabric and so far, no man-made fibres have been able to replicate all the unique qualities of wool. The fabric doesn’t smell bad if you sweat, for example. What’s 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 undergarment keeps you warm anyway. It’s because of a chemical process within the wool called absorption heat. Ullfrotté Original can be washed at 60 degrees.

Woolpower Ullfrotté Original 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 also knitted into the fabric.

All Ullfrotté garments are designed to be worn next to the skin but the 400 will also work ontop of a baselayer. A high qaulity merino baslayer is needed to ensure you recieve all the benifits of your 400 jacket. The terry loops and the overall loose knitting gives unique insulation compared to the fabric weight.
