Merino wool is a fabric of luxury that’s for sure, but it hides many unique properties of which not many of us know. So, come rain or shine, here’s why merino is the gentleman’s choice.
Those warm summer evenings are starting to make an appearance and you can almost taste that alfresco dining accompanied by a crisp white wine with friends. You begin to prep your summer wardrobe and you may find something you once had with you during the colder months – yes, it is the merino knitwear. For those of you who don’t know what this ‘more than your average jumper’ has to offer, well it’s time you did. Merino is a super lightweight, breathable fibre, unexpectedly making it ideal for keeping you cool during the warmer months. This highly adaptable fabric regulates temperature in all seasons, so as per the more commonly known trait, it’s an advantageous choice for the winter too, as it acts as a top-notch insulator, keeping you looking cool and cosy.
Treat a merino knit jumper as your go with everything, all year-round wardrobe essential. Layer up a sleek V-neck over a fresh cotton shirt, the ultimate attire for a day at the office or opt for a preppy polo and a light hued chino for a spot of mid-week socialising. A roll neck is the obvious winter choice oozing suave and sophisticated smart casual dress.
Now for the ‘knitty gritty.’ The foundation of a merino jumper is built around feather weight textiles providing its renowned fine luxurious feel. It’s smooth on the skin, thoroughly durable and crease resistant, consistently maintaining shape, making it a true investment piece. Paired under a jacket, or over a shirt of choice it will most definitely compliment your timeless ensemble. One of its special properties is its naturally occurring in high lanolin content making it resistant to odours caused by the bacteria in sweat, thus also making it more resistant to staining. This extra special knit has firmly earned its place on the fashion stage and is a must have staple in any gentleman’s wardrobe.
Sir, what are you waiting for? The merino knit jumper is a modern yet timeless staple that’s just dying to blossom with you, if not for the summer that dawns, but for all seasons.
