- What makes merino jumpers superior to synthetic ones?
- Unlike a synthetic layer, merino wool is a natural material so it is very breathable. You won’t get nearly as sweaty or uncomfortable in a merino wool jumper.

Merino is also better for the environment in the long run as it won’t break down to form microplastics in the wash or at the end of the jumper’s life cycle.
