By absorbing and repelling moisture it keeps skin dry and preserves body temperature, while its natural anti-microbial properties make it odour resistant. These qualities make Merino wool suitable for riding in cool, damp conditions or warm ones.
Woven with over 200 years of experience, each piece in the collection is created using a 36 stage process, including rigorous John Smedley testing methods, to ensure it keeps its shape ride after ride.
