Merino wool fibers are much finer than traditional wool fibers, which makes them feel softer and more lightweight. The fine diameter of the fibers also allows them to bend and flex more easily, making them feel more pliable and less scratchy against the skin.
Merino wool absorbs radiation throughout the UV spectrum while cotton, nylon, acrylic and silk are very poor absorbers of UV, absorbing only limited wavelengths of the ultraviolet range.

Merino wool has a natural resistance to bacteria. This is due to the structure of the wool fibers, which contain a high level of natural lanolin. Lanolin is a wax-like substance that acts as a natural antibacterial agent and helps to prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

"I never wear anything else here in the tropics. The t-shirt in the picture is my favorite. Three years old, countless hours in the sun and it's gone from petrol to a cool steel grey. I LOOOWE THEM!"
