We’ve adapted merino wool into a system of lightweight layers that give you the same freedom to explore your environment. Wear a next-to-skin layer in warmer weather, then layer up for insulation in the cold. When icebreaker garments are layered together, air is trapped in between each fine layer to ramp up the warmth. Your layers lock together like a single lightweight garment.
Merino sheep have a light, fine, ultrabreathable coat that keeps them cool in the scorching summer heat of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. When winter sets in, they grow an extra layer of wool over their base coat so they can roam through fields of ice and snow in warmth and comfort.
