Technical information

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.
This means we have full traceability, which allows us to guarantee the origin of the wool.

HOW HAVE WE ENHANCED THE DURABILITY OF OUR T-SHIRTS MADE WITH MERINO WOOL?

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.

Odour control

The components used reduce bad odours. Laboratory tested according to ISO 17299-3
This means you can carry less clothing when trekking!

Reduction of the freezing effect

After exercise and sweating heavily, 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 faster.

Tip before use

For a softer feel, wash your t-shirt before first use.

HOW TO WASH YOUR T-SHIRT MADE WITH MERINO WOOL?

We recommend that you machine wash your MT500 MERINO wool T-shirt at 30°C 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:

TESTS

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.
