So what is Merino? Merino is some of the softest and finest wool on the market. It is commonly used in high performance athletic wear for it’s properties over synthetic fabrics. Those properties are regulating body temperature, draws moisture from the body, has antimicrobial abilities and an amazing warmth to weight ratio. (Info gathered from Wikipedia for Merino Sheep). Now that we know what Merino is let’s talk about the line!

This range is made for performance and comfort. aussieBum is one of those companies that loves to experiment with new fabrics. Until this range I was not aware of Merino wool. Although, after reading out the wool, it seems like this is a perfect fabric for underwear. It not only can keep you warm but keep moisture away from the body! I think this is pretty awesome!

So how does aussieBum describe the range:

Merino is world first in men’s underwear design incorporating a merino wool waistband. Innovation and functionality is what makes this a style leader in the field of thermal comfort. Absolute luxury in quality, fit and most importantly comfort. No expense has been spared in developing the world’s first Merino wool waistband that provides additional comfort in extreme heat and cold weather. Merino delivers where other brands have failed to deliver when using merino wool as its core fibre. If there is one style to have always in your underwear draw, we highly recommend ‘Merino’. The best of the best is comfort, quality and performance.

The range has the typical styles we know from aussieBum, the brief and hipster. The colors of the range are black and grey with a red aussieBum waistband. The fabric content is 94% Merino Wool, 6% Elastane. The brief retails for $28.34 and hipster is $29.34  at the aussieBum site
