Icebreaker Spring/Summer 2018 Has Arrived!!
Time to say goodbye to the old, and hellloooo to the new… and might we say the AMAZING. We seriously cannot get enough of all of the new Icebreaker pieces we have this season. More of the same premium quality that we all know and love, but with new styles like we have never seen from them before!
Just in case you’ve never heard of merino wool here are just a few reasons why we love it:
- This natural fibre is extremely soft unlike more traditional wool clothing.
- Naturally antibacterial and odour resistant!
- Totally anti-wrinkle – perfect for packing on trips or in gym bags
- It absorbs up to 40% of its own weight in water (or sweat)
- It stays warm when its wet!!!
- Its naturally thermoregulating, so you’ll be warm when its cold, and the same pieces will keep you cool in the heat!!! #magic
- It dries EXTREMELY fast – perfect for our wet west coast climate in spring time!
If you’ve heard of merino, but never Icebreaker Merino.. here’s a few areas where it stands apart:
- Icebreaker works directly with small farms in New Zealand to source the best quality merino from the most ethically treated sheep and sustainable farming possible!!
- No sheep are harmed in the processing of the wool! They actually really love it… Merino don’t naturally shed their wool so its quite a relief once a year to get it sheered!
- The farms that Icebreaker works with are committed to providing a stress-free environment for the sheep.. the quality of the sheep’s life = the quality of the wool 🙂
- The wool that is produced from Icebreaker Merino Sheep specifically is softer than most other commercially available merino
- Icebreaker core spins a number of their clothes to ensure durability
- Their socks are all guaranteed for LIFE!!!
