COOLMAX® is the performance yarn that includes an effective fiber-based moisture management system. The system can move perspiration away from the body, through the fabric, and transfer out of the wear. It can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and much more comfortable. COOLMAX® fresh FX has the permanent anti-bacterial performance due to the special treatment by silver-based additive during the production. COOLMAX® is the registered trademark of Invista®.
Warm, breathable, moisture repellent and anti-static, Merino has the capacity to deal with moisture like no other yarns, absorbing perspiration and releasing it into the air as vapor. It is naturally odor resistant too. Luxuriously soft and gentle against the skin, it reacts to your body’s temperature, keeping you warm when it’s cold and releasing body heat and moisture when it’s hot. The natural elasticity and resilience of Merino wool enables it to spring back into shape with ease.
Known for being incredibly soft, Bamboo Rayon is anti-static and sits well next to your skin. It is moisture-wicking to keep you drier. Antibacterial. Its warm thanks to its hollow fiber yet also breathable so that it performs well in all temperatures. It grows naturally, needs very little rain to produce rapidly, and is 100% biodegradable.
drirelease® WOOL BLEND
drirelease® technology uses an engineered blend of multi-denier, multi-staple length hydrophobic (water-hating) and hydrophilic (water-loving) fibers to keep wearers dry, cool and comfortable. The unique blend of synthetic and natural fibers in drirelease® yarn actually accelerates the water release rate. Rather than just spreading moisture across the surface, drirelease® fabrics push water and perspiration to the outside of a garment, releasing them into the air faster than other performance fabrics on the market. The drirelease® WOOL blend is as warm as 100% wool without the itch. The wearer never feels clammy against the skin. drirelease® can be found in a wide variety of outdoor and active apparel from many of the world’s best brands.
