How does the wool in the MT500 t-shirt reduce bad odours?
Thanks to its excellent capacity to absorb moisture, wool reduces bad odours. Indeed, merino wool not only absorbs the water contained in perspiration, it also absorbs the exhalation of perspiration odours. So you can wear your T-shirt for several days in a row, which means you can take fewer clothes on a trek!
How have we improved the durability of ourMT500 trekking t-shirt?
Use of a BETA-SPUN yarn structure in which the polyamide threads coat the Merino wool fibres and protect them from rubbing and cuts without affecting their technical properties.
How does the MT500 Merino wool t-shirt make perspiration evaporate?
When you make a physical effort and sweat heavily, the merino wool easily traps the insulating warm air and can absorb up to 35% of its weight in moisture without making you feel damp, which is appreciable in cool weather. In hot, dry weather, the evaporation of the water in the wool absorbs energy, which cools the body slightly at the same time.
Where does the Merino wool that is used in the MT500 Merino wool t-shirt come from?
We 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) so that we can guarantee that the sheep, from which we get the wool for our products, have good living and shearing conditions.
This means we have traceability, which allows us to guarantee the origin of the wool.
How do I wash my MT500 Merino wool t-shirt?
We recommend that you machine wash your Merino wool t-shirt at 30° on a normal cycle, preferably with liquid detergent. Always dry flat and NEVER tumble-dry unless you want to end up with a doll-sized merino T-shirt! You can find an article on looking after merino wool clothing on the Forclaz website.
