Engel Merino wool

Wool fibres are natural and have an affinity with human skin. Wool possesses qualities such as warmth retention, the ability to regulate humidity and it allows skin to breathe. Wool can absorb up to one third of its own weight of moisture and, if outside conditions allow, return it to the environment. Engel uses wool that comes from Merino sheep, so the virgin wool is finely crimped, does not itch and feels soft and cosy. The Merino sheep are organically farmed and therefore live a healthy and stress-free life, and pesticides are banned from the pasture as well as the animals themselves.

Engel Merino wool / silk blends

Merino virgin wool/silk blends are kind to the skin as they have the ability to regulate warmth and humidity. The Engel organic wool / silk base layer underwear collection is comprised a of 70 % organic merino virgin wool and 30 % silk mix. This proportion brings out the best characteristics of both the natural virgin wool and silk and to give a comfortable and long-lasting wear experience.
