Choice of material:
Wool and especially merino wool has fantastic thermal properties. It insulates, breathes and is self-cleaning due to the natural lanolin that will saponify when it comes into contact with moisture / perspiration. So you don't have to wash wool as much as cotton clothing! Merino wool absorbs up to 3 to 4 times its own weight in moisture without feeling clammy. It has a thermally regulating (enveloping) effect and is therefore very valuable as a base layer for adults but also for children who do not yet have an autonomous working heat mechanism (up to approx. 10 years).
