What are our commitments in favour of animal welfare?
We only use wool from Merino sheep bred on farms in South Africa that do not practise mulesing. We decided to build a partnership with a group of breeders (Konsortium Merino) to guarantee respect for animal welfare and the environment. We have full traceability which allows us to guarantee the origin of the wool. More information: https://www.forclaz.fr/merinos-2019-bp_4128
How did we improve the durability of our merino wool T-shirts?
We use a BETA-SPUN yarn structure, i.e. the merino wool fibres are coated with a fine sheath of polyamide filaments to protect them from rubbing and cuts, without affecting the properties of the wool.
Wool from Merino sheep naturally controls the spread of bacteria that cause bad smells. This Merino wool T-shirt can therefore be worn several days in a row and means you can take less clothes when trekking making for a lighter backpack!
Reducing the "freezing effect"
After exercise and heavy sweating, Merino wool prevents evaporation helping to maintain body temperature by absorbing the majority of the body's moisture. This therefore reduces any unpleasant chilling effect. Conversely, a synthetic material lets the body temperature go back down again quicker.
Advice before use
To make the component feel softer, don't hesitate to wash your T-shirt before first use.
How to wash your merino wool T-shirt
We recommend that you machine wash your Merino wool tee-shirt at 30° on a normal cycle, preferably with liquid detergent. Dry flat and NEVER tumble dry unless you want it to shrink by one or two sizes! For more information: https://www.forclaz.fr/conseils/comment-laver-mon-tee-shirt-de-trek-en-laine-merinos-tp_1550
In November 2018, 8 trekkers (4 men and 4 women) and part of the Forclaz design team tested this T-shirt for four days in the Southern French Alps (Lus La Croix Haute). You can expect wind, rain, a bit of snow, a bivouac... and a lot of fun! We were then able to make the final modifications and validate it for mountain trekking use.
