When you hear the words “wool top,” you may picture an itchy, thick jersery but this is not the case. It is in fact soft, lightweight and dries quickly.
There is a big push in the sports-apparel world to make more products from Merino Wool. This wool type is natural, breathable, odor resistant and anti-microbial Merino wool is temperature regulating, keeping warm when it’s cold and cool when its hot, which is one of the many reasons why it’s so popular in the sporting world.
I have been a wool convert for a while, from wearing wool when I was training for the Dusi Canoe Marathon. I purchased an imported wool all weather paddle top, and not only did it keep me warm, it also dried very quickly.
I recently discovered a South African brand –CORE MERINO. Their range includes mens and ladies activewear. I have been very impressed with this brand, and wanted to share some of the benefits of working out in wool.
