Why Wool Underwear?

Merino Wool is just the best. Its versatility is unmatched in the wide world of fabrics, and to make things better it is all natural as well as sustainable!

This is why we love Icebreaker so much here at Cycle Solutions. Ethically produced with great style, it really is a super brand. It is also highly innovative, with the advent of MerinoLoft insulation — their warmest and most remarkable technology (you can read a little bit more about it here).

Today, though, we’d like to talk a little about underwear.  Read More
