"Needs less washing: Merino wool clothes are naturally odour resistant, so require less washing, saving you time and money on water and energy bills. Stain resistant: Merino wool fibres have a natural protective outer layer that helps prevent stains from being absorbed. Wrinkle resistant: Each Merino wool fibre is like a coiled spring that returns to its natural shape after being bent. This gives Merino wool garments a natural resistance to wrinkles.
