100% Merino Wool T-Shirt Properties

How We Started

Many big brands have adopted merino wool for adventure sportswear based on its many supreme functional qualities. Most of this apparel, however, is sporty looking, great for the mountains, not so much for the city.

On the other hand, merino wool is known as one of the most luxurious fabrics for designer suits and knitwear in high-end fashion. High quality clothing best for formal occasions, yet not something really suitable for daily wear.

We truly love merino wool for its performance attributes and premium quality. We couldn’t find merino wool clothing that meets both: the functionality of adventure sportswear and the premium quality of high-end fashion. So we set out to create merino wool clothing that you could wear everyday for wherever your day takes you.

To make our T-Shirts we wanted to use the best possible merino wool. Having searched far and wide we found the perfect source in Australia and then partnered with a specialized manufacturer that’s Woolmark certified to develop a super soft fabric that would have all the characteristics we were looking for together with a smooth and gentle feel next to your skin

Most importantly our merino wool is not mercerized. This means it is not a lesser grade wool made to feel like a higher grade wool. We use pure new wool keeping all the natural properties intact, including the waxy acids that act as a coating that make our T-Shirts naturally water repellent.

Where We Are

We have been perfecting the durability of our fabric for the last couple of months. We just received the last of many prototypes and the fabric is great. It's much more resilient and drapes far better. The designs are now complete, the fit is approved, the color dips are matched up and our supply chain is ready to begin production.

The last step is getting your help in bringing Woolpack to light. The money raised will allow us to source premium quality pure new wool from Australia and go into production to make these incredible 100% Merino Wool T-Shirts available to you. Only with your help will we be able to make this happen and we can’t wait for you to feel and experience a new way of wearing wool.

FAQ

  • After the kickstarter project ends, you will receive a survey to choose the size/s, color/s and style/s you want.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, we recommend cold wash and line dry.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, we suggest turning the T-Shirt inside out and ironing on a low heat setting.

    Last updated:
  • Since our T-Shirt has natural anti-odor properties, which prevent the growth of odor causing bacteria, you can wear the T-Shirt many times even when breaking a sweat and it won't smell. However, the T-Shirt will not protect you from bad body odor. When it does start to give off a smell, which might take a while, then throw it in the wash.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, the T-Shirt repels water naturally due to the waxy acid, lanolin, which coats the fiber. This coating is permanent, but, water repellency may decrease over time with wear.

  • We source our Woolmark certified pure new wool from Australia.
