The Sportwool™ advantage

We believe that from the moment you first wear Sportwool™ you will understand what makes this fabric not just unique but revolutionary.

How Sportwool™ works

The internal core temperature for a human being is as close to 98.6°F as possible. Fluctuations of more than 7°F can prove fatal.

Muscle activity during physical exercise produces a rise in core body temperature. Blood supply to the skin’s surface is increased, triggering perspiration as the body’s natural cooling mechanism.

Perspiration is first expelled from the skin’s pores in the form of moisture vapor. It will later condense to liquid sweat on the skin’s surface.

Muscle activity during physical exercise produces a rise in core body temperature. Blood supply to the skin’s surface is increased and perspiration kicks in as the body’s natural cooling mechanism.

The dispersal of water vapor from the skin therefore becomes a highly efficient process where the vapor is rapidly transferred through the fabric to the external atmosphere.

Clothing that cannot manage vapor will cause a build up of liquid sweat on your skin leaving you feeling clammy and uncomfortable and exposed to the risk of post exercise chill.

Just what does Sportwool do?

  • Unique and effective moisture vapor management helping you feel cooler for longer.
  • Excellent wicking properties, moving liquid sweat away from the skin to keep you feeling drier.
  • A natural micro-climate system that can reduce post exercise chill.
  • Garments that feel dry to the touch and less clammy against the skin.
  • Natural and comfortable elasticity and recovery.
  • Natural UV protection.
