Wool for running
Whether you’re running, cycling or doing high-intensity activities, wool is clearly the best material to wear. The great thing about it is that you can wear it in any season, whether it’s summer wool or good woolen underwear for cooler days.
When you move a lot or have are working at high intensity, you quickly become hot and sweaty. This is when wool is ventilating and thermo-regulating, preventing you from overheating. Even when you’re standing still or taking breaks, wool clothing will keep you warm.
Merino sportswear is popular because its fibers adjust to your body temperature and conditions, while being soft and comfortable against the skin. Go for clothes according to season, needs and activity.

Wool for both hot and cold days
If you sweat a lot or have sensitive skin, Merino wool will be a good alternative, probably the best in fact. Thanks to this wool's antibacterial and wicking properties, it helps keep your clothes odorless and creates a good climate for your skin no matter what your intensity is. Merino wool is worth wearing even as everyday wear.
On warmer days, wool will keep you cool, and our Pace collection is perfect for high-intensity running and cycling.

Make a sustainable choice
If you’re looking for clothes that will last a long time for your run, choose wool. Wool doesn't smell and therefore doesn't need to be washed between uses like synthetic clothes do. It’s just as effective to hang it out to air between uses, which means you'll also save water and the environment.
