Can you wear wool in the summer?

Most people are aware of the benefits of wearing wool during the colder months, when it warms and insulates. However, the material is also very good in the warmer months for several reasons:

  • Protects against the sun
    Wool protects your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, making it ideal for the summer months.

  • Keeps your body dry
    Wool wicks sweat away from the skin and can absorb a large amount of moisture without feeling wet. This ensures you stay dry even when sweating, unlike other fabrics which often feel cold and damp. It is because of its large air content that wool has a cooling effect on the body.

  • Doesn’t smell
    The natural lanoline content of the merino wool gives it a self-cleaning property. As a result, dirt does not penetrate the fibres and it is often enough to air your woollen underwear outside. Unlike polyester, wool does not smell badly after being worn several times.

  • Breathable
    Merino wool’s large air content also makes the underwear breathable, allowing your skin to breathe. As a result, the wool’s natural properties make it extraordinarily comfortable to wear.

  • Suitable for children
    Children are constantly on the go. One minute they are running and playing, the next they are sleeping. Therefore, it is important to keep the body dry (allowing their skin to breathe), minimising their risk of getting ill. Merino wool is ideal for this purpose.

  • Perfect for outdoor activities
    The wool’s properties also make it perfect for nature-loving, active people, who use their underwear for outdoor activities such as hunting, hiking, and fishing.

One of our customers describes the wool like this on trustpilot:

”I’ve now tried your woollen underwear while hunting, and it works! I was not clammy or damp after half a day of pushing through the woods, through chaparral and blackberry brambles, and sweating several times. Unlike other synthetic, sweat-wicking underwear, woollen underwear does not smell after a day’s use. It was a pleasure to wear your underwear, and I am very happy that the amazing properties of woollen underwear have been brought to my attention.
