Wool 101: What is Merino Wool?

Where Ibex Wool Comes From

Understanding the “Micron”

The smaller the micron gauge, the finer the wool fiber. That's what makes Ibex wool ultra-soft and comfortable.

Fibers are selected for specific levels of performance long before they are knit into the fabrics you rely on for function.

Benefits of Wool

Natural SPF Wool garments offer substantially more protection from UV exposure than traditional summer fabrics, like cotton.

Temp. Control Wool draws moisture away from the skin and evaporates moisture, regulating body temperature in all conditions.

Stay Fresh Ibex wool products naturally include antimicrobial properties, keeping your garment odor-free.

Easy Care Wool fights off weather and dirt and prevents stains, making Ibex easy to wash and easy to keep clean.

Ultra Soft Because Ibex is made from very small micron diameter fibers, our garments are extremely soft and comfortable.

Traceable The craftspeople who are involved in every step of the process–from the sheep, to the spinners, to the sewers–are carefully hand-selected.

Sustainable Because we use wool–a natural and renewable fiber– Ibex is good for you and good for the Earth.

Non-Flammable Ibex wool garments resist heat. They don’t hold a flame and won’t melt like synthetic fabrics and fibers.
