WHY MERINO WOOL
IS OUR TOP CHOICE
Australian Merino wool is the remarkable result of millions of years of evolution. It is rich in natural properties that inspire some of the world's leading designers. And its unique benefits flow through our luxuriously soft and stylish saddle pads crafted from it. Read about these benefits below…
Soft: Merino fibres are extremely fine, enabling them to bend far more than traditional, coarser wool fibres. This makes Merino wool feel soft and luxuriously gentle next to the skin.
Breathable: Merino fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour then move it away to evaporate into the air. So Merino wool is extremely breathable and less prone to clamminess.
Warm & Cool: In contrast to synthetics, Merino is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature. So it helps keep things warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot.
Odour resistant: In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool can absorb moisture vapour, which means less body sweat. Merino wool even absorbs the odours from sweat, which are then released during washing.
Stain resistant: Merino fibres have a natural protective outer layer that prevents stains from being absorbed. And because Merino wool tends not to generate static, it attracts less dust and lint.
Machine washable: Recent innovations mean Merino wool saddle pads can be machine-washed (30°), dry naturally. We recommend washing with our Horse Cooler Rug/Wool Wash.
Renewable: Every year Australian Merino sheep produce a new fleece, making Merino wool a completely renewable fibre source. It is also biodegradable when being disposed of.
