Last year, we decided to join the many outdoor enthusiasts who are switching to 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 polypro, Capiline, and other synthetics in this all natural base layer product. 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 sheep to produce a finer and finer wool. (hence the no-itch factor) Ours are 17.5 micron/sq. meter.
They helped a lot, mainly by introducing us to with Dr. Tran Quyen, a retired apparel professor in Vietnam who showed us 7 different factories in Saigon (or HCMC).
A few were quite impressive with the latest knitting machines and high-tech equipment.
We chose the best one, and shipped the raw Merino wool to them, where they spun, knitted, dyed, and sewed them to our specifications.
Ours are considered a lightweight fabric at 150 grams per sq. meter.
