BUT WHAT EXACTLY IS MERINO?
Merino is one of the world’s oldest and toughest breeds of sheep. The Merino sheep lives in tough conditions in the southern alps of New Zealand. Here The Merino sheep have adapted to conditions ranging from +35 degrees Celsius in Summer to -20 degrees Celsius in Winter. Such extreme temperature demands an adaptable, breathable, protective wool coat.
The wool from The Merino sheep is used to manufacture yarn for merino performance products.
