ALL INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHEEP FIBRE
SINCE 1988, WE TRUST IN WOOL.
More than a quarter of a century of experience in working with the most functional of all natural fibers. We combine natural material and other innovative fabrics. With the resulting system of wear comfort we provide you with unique functionality and wear-comfort properties for your mountain adventures.
Merino wool offers particular advantages due to its very fine fiber diameter and excellent durability. At ORTOVOX we only use wool fibers measuring 18–19 microns (one micron = one-thousandth of a millimeter). There are thinner fiber diameters, although these cannot really be processed economically and, what’s more, they do not offer the stability required for alpine sports.
