Merino Wool Fabric

Merino Wool Technology You'll Love

Many Ridge Merino products feature our (m)Force™ Technology, which results in a fabric that dries faster and lasts longer than 100% merino wool. The (m)Force™ Technology also helps the fabric recover properly without stretching out over time and use. Whether you need sun protection clothing for fishing, backpacking, or kayaking, (m)Force™ Technology truly augments the performance of merino wool.

We love our Merino wool. On top of being natural, renewable, and biodegradable, Merino wool wicks moisture and is antimicrobial. Thanks to our premium Merino wool, accessories have never provided so much comfort and breathability.

Merino Wool Softness

Merino Wool That is Certified to Protect

Merino wool is different from traditional wool for a few reasons, one being that merino wool is the most flame-resistant of any type of natural fabric. So whether you're close to the campfire, or you're at high altitude on a sunny day, our merino wool is protecting you.

Merino wool offers a buttery softness unmatched by other types of wool. Merino fibers are very fine and don't have the scratchy feel many people associate with wool garments.
