About this project

FIT

The majority of our styles are form fitting without being overly tight. We have gone through four iterations of each garment, and will continue to do so over the life of the campaign to ensure that the fits are as close to perfect as possible. We do suggest to those that desire a looser fit that you order a size up.

SIZE OFFERING

WHY GRUNARD?

It’s about time we rethink our clothing. Not only is the production and manufacture of the garments we wear adversely affecting our environment, but the articles of clothing themselves are also serving only one purpose: to cover our skin. At Grunard, we believe that clothing should do much more than that, not only in terms of its look and appearance, but also in how it performs. We should never have to choose between fashion and performance. Instead, these aspects should live in harmony, and the clothing we wear should reflect that. Merino Wool is tested and proven to perform better than synthetic materials, is the only performance fabric that boasts a luxury status, and is a completely natural and sustainable resource. By combining elements of style and fashion with this truly amazing fabric, we have created a line of clothing built for any, and all aspects of life. 


Our Fabric:

MAPP is your guarantee of source, process and functionality. Combined with Bluesign, which is the highest standard of environmentally friendly textile manufacture, our fabric performs at a world class level with a seamless relationship with the environment.

Enhanced Breathability 

Unlike synthetics that trap heat between the garment and wearer, Merino Wool’s fiber structure allows for enhanced breathability, allowing heat to escape during increased activity

Moisture Wicking 

Merino fiber has a hydrophilic (water holding) interior and hydrophobic (water repelling) exterior, which gives it superior wicking properties. Moisture is pulled away from your body and is transported to the surface of the fabric for quicker evaporation and ultimately a drier garment.

Heat Retentive 

Merino Wool retains heat even when wet, assisting its wearer from chilling down after prolonged workouts. This is especially useful for those active in colder climates where excessive sweating can become a serious issue. This amazing attribute is achieved through a process called ‘heat of sorption’, in which Merino fibers actually generate a small but perceptible amount of heat via a natural chemical reaction that occurs when moisture binds to the structure of the fiber.

Temperature Regulating 

The combination of breathability, moisture wicking, and heat retentive properties give Merino Wool the ability to adapt to changes in the physiological state of it’s wearer, helping the body to remain at equilibrium for longer periods of time.

Anti Microbial and Stain Resistive 

Renowned for it’s natural ability to fight odor, Merino Wool prevents the buildup of odor causing bacteria. Dirt and spills do not easily adhere to the fabric, allowing for prolonged usage and decreased need for regular cleaning.

Luxuriously Soft

Unlike normal wool, which is composed of much thicker fibers, Merino Wool’s ultra fine fibers combine to form a luxuriously soft fabric that is extremely comfortable next to the skin.

Fire Resistant and Self-Extinguishing

Beneficial for avid campers and backpackers, Merino Wool provides a fire resistive barrier to its wearer.

Easy Care

Innovative knitting and manufacturing processes now allow for much easier garment care. Merino Wool is machine washable and resists wrinkling.

100% Natural, Sustainable and Biodegradable 

Raised on or organic diet of grass and water, Merino sheep continuously produce wool throughout their lifetime. As an organic fiber, Merino Wool is 100% biodegradable and will return to the earth after a long life of use.

Risks and challenges

This is our first rodeo, but we have surrounded ourselves with some of the best in the business. Everyone from our pattern and sample makers, to our consultant, garment factory head, and shipping expert, all have over 30 years in the business and are more than capable of delivering when it matters most. With that said, unforeseen circumstances are always a possibility. However, in the unlikely event that this occurs, our backers will be the first to hear about them, and solutions will be reached as soon as humanly possible.

  • You sure can! Kickstarter still doesn't allow for bundle packages so all you need to do is put in the correct pledge amount (for example if you order now for early bird prices the hoodie and eros long sleeve would be $200). At the end of the campaign we will send out an email for you to tell us the style, size, and color you ordered!
