Discover Merino Wool

Merino wool is natural, renewable and biodegradable. It insulates while wicking moisture away from the skin. It's also antimicrobial, so it repels odor and stays stink-free. Merino is also buttery soft, because its fibers are very fine and don't have the scratchy feel many people associate with wool garments.

Polartec® Power Wool™

We added a little something extra to our more technical Merino wool mid layer, the Convict Canyon Hoodie: Polartec Power Wool. This bi-component knit fabric combines the best of both natural and synthetic fibers. The construction pairs a soft and odor-reducing Merino wool in an open grid pattern with a lightweight polyester exterior that is durable and quick-drying. This strengthens performance by increasing warmth and breathability while reducing fabric mass, which makes this mid layer easy to pack.
