WHY BAMBOO AND MERINO WOOL?
A NATURAL FIBRE BLEND EVERYONE CAN WEAR.
The Platinum Blend takes the best of bamboo and merino to deliver the highest degree of comfort and performance that caters for 100% of customers. Those with allergies and irritations to 100% merino, do not itch or scratch due to the silk like quality of bamboo. Bacteria is controlled with no smell after several wears. Temperature is effectively regulated in warm and cool conditions. Moisture is quickly wicked and evaporated away from the skin. Warmer, drier, softer and cleaner.
A powerful textile insulator, warm in the cold and cool in the heat. The air trapped inside the natural scales of Bamboo fiber retain the thermal energy created by the body. It is textile air conditioning leaving you naturally regulated in all conditions.
Bamboo & merino provide a leading wicking agency. The fiber cross-sections are covered with micro-gaps giving the fabric better moisture absorption and ventilation than all other fibers. Naturally moves sweat from the skin leaving you drier for longer.
Bamboo is similar to the softness of silk and cashmere, naturally smoother and rounder with no sharp spurs to irritate the skin. It makes the products hypo allergenic. Those with irritations to merino tend to have no reaction with our bamboo & merino blend.
Controls the odour producing bacteria providing a true anti-bacterial product for less odour and unsurpassed hygiene. Negatively charged ions, leading wicking properties and an antibacterial agent keep it fresh, dry and hygienic with no smell.
BAMBOO: A RAPIDLY RENEWABLE, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY RESOURCE.
THE FABRIC IS SMOOTH AS SILK AND CASHMERE, FAR SOFTER THAN MERINO.
Bamboo has key technical attributes suited perfectly to active wear. In addition to those of merino, bamboo provides a softer feel removing irritations and allergies to 100% merino with smoother/rounder fibres. Bamboo is also great at controlling odour-producing bacteria to keep it hygienic with no smell.
Bamboo contains a natural antibacterial agent and pesticide known as “Bamboo Kun”. This natural anti-bacteria has been tested to last for more than 50 washes, still retaining it’s function.
The end result of this process leaves the bamboo fabric with a silk and cashmere like softness, superior breathability and antibacterial properties. All of which are maintained and then blended with our super fine merino wool to create our Platinum Blend.
