Improved performance with MerinoPerform PRO

MerinoPerform PROAustralian Wool Innovation (AWI) is to launch its new MerinoPerform PRO fabric innovation at the ISPO international sports trade show in Munich, Germany next month.

According to AWI, MerinoPerform PRO is a new knitted fabric technology made entirely of Merino wool, which uniquely transfers both vapour and sweat away from the body, enabling the wearer to stay comfortably cool and dry during exercise.

“Ideal for base-layer garments aimed at low to high activity sports, this innovation has been developed from a unique double-face 100% Merino fabric. During the initial phases of exercise, the inner layer of the Merino fabric absorbs moisture vapour thereby creating a drier micro-climate. Any sweat is efficiently absorbed by the fabric’s outer layer where it quickly evaporates, leaving the wearer cooler and drier,” a spokesperson for AWI said recently.

Made from an entirely natural fibre, merino wool, this new high performance innovation is also said to be ideal for consumers who are seeking an eco-friendly product.

“MerinoPerform PRO is a new fabric technology, designed to deliver the highest levels of comfort and performance during sports and outdoor activities, all year round and in all climates,” the Australian company said.

At ISPO, AWI will also be showcasing a range of commercially available fabrics from the global MerinoPerform supply base, including MerinoPerform Next to Skin and MerinoPerform Advantage fabrics. For anyone at ISPO seeking information about merino fibre, AWI says it will have substantial technical information available on its stand.

As well as providing information on the specifications of its MerinoPerform technology, AWI also provides sourcing information for the entire supply chain and general advice on all aspects of working with Merino.
