WARMSTUFF'S 100% MERINO WOOL BOTTOMS
Last year, we decided to join the outdoor enthusiasts in choosing Merino Wool as a base layer.
So, we bought a set to test it through the winter.
We were quite impressed with the advantages over polypropylene, Capiline, and other synthetics in this all natural base layer product. The biggest advantage seems to be: no smell (left a set on for 4 days, sweating in the daytime, sleeping in them at night, etc.) Warm with no itch in a 100% wool product!
But, the cost??? At $75+ each piece, we wanted to see if we could do better by skipping all middlemen.
So, we contacted Woolmark Co. in Australia and even went there for a tour of a Merino Wool ranch. Quite impressive. They are breeding these
Merino sheep to produce a finer and finer wool. (hence the "no-itch" factor)
They helped hook us up with Dr. Tran Quyen, a retired professor in Vietnam who showed us 7 different factories in Ho Chi Min City (or Saigon).
A few were quite impressive with the latest knitting machines and high-tech equipment.
We chose one, shipped the raw Merino Wool to them
where they spun, knitted, dyed and sewed (to our specifications),
Ours are considered a lightweight fabric at 150 grams per square meter. See bottom of this page for actual individual weights of each piece.
And are pleased to announce that they are now here in our warehouse in Pennsylvania and we are ready to sell them at a Great Price: $29.99 each!
