Sustainable Design 204: MerinoLite® Insulation
A while ago we came together as a team wanting to create a natural insulation that does the least harm on our environment and would move us away from using traditional Down.
Our answer to this was MerinoLite®. Made from 50% Australian Merino Wool and 50% traditional course wool, MerinoLite® is not only light and warm but is also 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable.
Unlike its’ counterpart, traditional Down, MerinoLite® is also able to hold its form when wet thanks to the beneficial property structure of the Merino Wool fibre. This makes MerinoLite® the perfect choice for outdoor activities - no need to fear the rain!
When we realised how good our MerinoLite® insulation was, we made sure to not only put it in our puffers, but to also use this insulation in some of our outerwear and glove products too.
