Merino is a natural textile material with excellent properties. Merino wool perfectly retains heat even in the greatest frosts, it is perfectly breathable, but at the same time it did not require washing after each use. In addition, it has an excellent thermoregulatory function - it heats and cools exactly according to the current needs of the human body. The structure of the wave can bind air to itself. It creates a thin layer of air between the skin and the first layer, thus keeping the body warm. Merino wool naturally absorbs and evaporates moisture outwards. That is, even in summer and it is pleasant in it. In addition, merino wool contains lanolin, which has permanent antibacterial properties, thus preventing the formation of odors even when worn for a long time.
It is a natural, recyclable, renewable material that has a long service life and is easy to maintain. Thanks to its unique properties, merino is not designed specifically for specific conditions or activities. On the contrary, it is an absolutely perfect partner for year-round wear.
Bamboo fiber is a raw material obtained from the stems of bamboo. Fibers for the textile processing industry are known only since the late 20th century. On the European market the yarn came up in 2007. These fibers are viscose fibers produced from bamboo wood. The fibers have a more pleasant feel than cotton. Fibers are more resistant to bacteria growth, by 60% comparing to cotton fibres. This is due to the content of a substance called "KUN".
Products made out of bamboo fibers are very pleasant to use, ensure optimum heat balance of the body, dry naturally and provide long-lasting fresh feeling.

Viscose fibre from Lenzing. It is of vegetable origin, obtained from raw wood. The production of the fibre itself is extremely environmentally friendly, thanks to a special cyclic production system. TENCEL® fabrics absorb more than cotton, are softer than silk and cooler than linen. The fibres absorb moisture quite naturally and then release it outwards. The smooth construction of TENCEL® fibres makes the knit particularly soft and comfortable in contact with the skin. The perfect moisture wicking system of these cellular fibres prevents the growth of bacteria.
Bacteria do not stand a chance with TENCEL®. The perfect moisture management of this cellulosic fiber is responsible for the reduced bacteria growth.

Softshell is an ideal material for light anoraks or pants. Wind and water proof while staying highly permeable. This material is soft, warm, light and elastic - perfectly suitable for comfortable wearing.
BONDED SEAMS TECHNOLOGY
Bonded seams technology allows two pieces of material to be joined together without the use of any threads that could cause skin irritation when playing sports. Therefore, products with bonded seams provide maximum comfort when worn. Thanks to the technology used, bonded seams can be up to 10 times more flexible than conventional sewn seams. Thanks to their strength and elasticity, they also ensure greater durability and resistance of clothing even under increased stress during intense sports activities.
Graphene is an innovative technical ingredient that is revolutionizing textile materials. This technical ingredient enriches the material with carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal pattern that give it extraordinary strength, provide optimal heat transport, ideal thermoregulation, UV resistance, prevent bacterial growth and body odour and even repel mites.

PROLEN Siltex is a special branded polypropylene yarn modified with biogenic silver ions. The antibacterial additive is totally free from harmful substances and environment friendly. Silver ions help to inhibit the growht of bacteria and mould, reduce unpleasant odours and keep the skin biologically balanced during any recreational sports activities.
DWR stands for Durable Water Repellent. It is a special surface treatment of the fabric, which makes it hydrophobic and water repellent. Materials with this treatment are characterized by long-term water resistance. Water simply flows down the surface in the form of small drops.
MATERIAL 4-WAY STRETCH
4 WAY STRETCH is a fast drying material with excellent breathability that can be stretched in all directions. This material is often used for sportswear where flexibility in all directions is essential for comfort wearing.
NO WIND MEMBRANE
The membrane by the Italian company Pontetorto is perfectly windproof and breathable. No Wind® products are therefore suitable for all outdoor activities even in extreme conditions.
Schoeller's technological treatment called Ecorepel® is produced by spiral wrapping of individual fibres with long paraffin chains. This reduces the surface tension so that water droplets and even mud, which have a much higher surface tension, are perfectly repelled. Breathability is not affected and the material remains pleasantly soft to the touch.
This is a top quality wool blend yarn MULTITECH for functional socks with enhanced antibacterial effect.
