The Warmest of the Icebreaker Merino ranges the Icebreaker® Merino 260 Tech range of garments, is a collection of luxurious Underwear and Base Layers constructed using 100% pure Merino wool sourced from their own farms in New Zealand. Merino wool is unique in that it has a very long and thin structure to the fibre which when woven, produces a superior soft fabric that is smooth to the touch and guaranteed non-itchy.
Icebreaker® adopts a strong ethos into Ethical Farming and Manufacturing and underpin this ethos with their garment guarantees of Ethical Production. If you care where your gear comes from, then Icebreaker® ticks all the necessary boxes we should all be looking for.
The Icebreaker Merino 260 Tech 260 fabric is the Warmest of the Icebreaker Merino collection with a 260 GSM fabric weight construction and is a close "cross weave" Jersey Knit structure where the fabric is designed to stretch and recover in all directions thereby maintaining shape at all times and forming to the body's natural contours when worn.
As with all wool products, the Icebreaker® Merino 260 Tech Merino Wool range, has natural anti-bacterial properties that eradicate bacterial smells that can build up in the fabric over time therefore the garments can be worn for longer periods over several days without the need for frequent washing which helps you as much as the planet.
All seams are designed to be as flat as is possible to avoid seam abrasion and using the same fabric yarn so as not to get any thread roughness anywhere on the garments and are constructed to the highest possible quality.
Whilst soft to the touch and highly flexible, the Icebreaker® Merino 260 Tech range is also highly durable and will withstand a lot of punishment.
Icebreaker Merino 260 Tech is the Warmest garment construction within the Icebreaker Merino Wool Base Layer range designed for use in very cold conditions. Ideal under clothing, school uniforms and work gear, the Icebreaker Merino 260 Tech collection is highly adaptable for multiple use in work, rest and play. The Merino 260 Tech collection of garments can hold up to 3 times their own weight in moisture which is how they are able to keep you dry but remain warm without feeling "tacky" as can be the case with some synthetic garments around.
Small unobtrusive colour tonal brand decal woven into each garment plus a small equally unobtrusive "Pip" logo for brand identity sewn into the seam at a sensible location.
