I spent a year researching base layer fabrics, during which time I challenged modern conventions and thinking, and tested a range of both synthetic and organic fibers and fabrics. I quickly came to the conclusion that Merino wool was the perfect solution for KUIU's ultralight base layer performance needs. But not all wool is equal. After an extensive search I found The Merino Company (TMC). Based in New Zealand, TMC manages a robust global supply chain from the top Merino growers in South Africa, South America, Australia, and New Zealand. This supply chain affords TMC consistent access to the highest quality Merino wool in the world.
The Merino 185 Bottom is incredibly comfortable next-to-skin base layer, naturally anti-microbial, odor resistant and moisture wicking. The Merino 185 Base Layer collection has been designed to be incredibly comfortable and effective in a range of conditions and temperatures, and to be worn and relied on for days and hours on end.
