Can I purchase the Merino Collection from Anaconda?
Yes, you can. Clothing that has a Merino lining is super lightweight and breathable, helping to maintain optimum temperature in even the most extreme conditions. It traps heat very efficiently, making it warmer than other materials and it can also release heat as needed. This natural fibre is comfortable and made with the highest standards in mind, and it is ideal as a base layer for fun in the snow or hikes in the outdoors in winter. Shop our awesome Merino clothes online or at your local Anaconda store today and stay toasty wherever you go and whatever the weather.
Can you tell me more about the Merino Collection?
The Merino collection is designed to ensure maximum insulation while helping you to maintain flexibility during those cold winter months. This is the ideal material for your base layer when you are hitting the slopes or for hikers, adventurers or survivalists when you are enjoying the great outdoors in those cold winter months. The Merino sheep is one of the world's most prized species, they are sheep that can survive in extreme temperatures as a direct result if the natural engineering of their fleece.
It is a natural fibre that is soft on the skin, and it even contains keratin elements, making it the ideal base layer fabric. The strands of the Merino wool contain millions of air pockets that act as insulation and can lock in body heat for that extra warmth. It can absorb around a third of its weight in water before you will feel damp, and even after it has got wet, the wool will soon spring back to its natural shape. It is also hypoallergenic and is the perfect option for people with sensitive skin who cannot bear the itchiness of regular wool.
What is included in this range?

There are a number of items that provide the perfect base layer and will help you to maintain warmth, flexibility and regulate your body temperature.

Keep your toes nice, and snug with Merino socks, the fact that this 100% natural material is also odour resistant is definitely a benefit.

How should I wash my new Merino clothing?
Well, that does depend on which of our Merino products you have chosen, and we always recommend reading the manufacturer's care instructions before you wash your item. Wash your merino wool on a cold wash only, unless your item states that it is only suitable for handwashing. If this is the case, it is essential that you do not allow your Merino Wool garment to soak for too long as this may cause it to shrink. We advise against tumble drying at all costs, and you should hang your clothes to dry, away from direct sunlight. Always avoid the use of any harsh chemicals, including chlorine and bleach.
