5 Reasons Why Merino Wool is Perfect for Golf Apparel

Merino wool has been a staple for many brands producing active wear for athletes in the mountains for many years. It's time to take Merino to the golf course. As finely tuned golf athletes we have been missing out! 

1. Antibacterial

1 Shirt.  1 Weekend

Merino Wool has natural antibacterial properties. Essentially a fancy way of saying, it won't stink and therefor needs less washing. You can wear merino wool golf shirts for multiple rounds without putting off your playing partners with an interesting odor. This means they are perfect for the weekend boys trip, travelling with your club, the multi round tournament, essentially anytime that you need to pack for a golf trip, you can pack lighter.

2. Keeps You Dry

Don't Sweat It

Merino Fibres naturally transports moisture away from your skin and releases it into the atmosphere. This incredible natural property is called "moisture wicking" and the fine fibres can absorb as much as 30% of its own weight.

This means your shirt won't stick to your back and take your mind off that 3 footer that you need to beat your buddy. 

3. Cools You Down

Keep your Cool

Merino wool regulates your body temperature by creating a microclimate against your skin. In warmer weather it absorbs moisture, transports it away from your skin and releases it into the atmosphere.

4. Keeps You Warm

No need to pack extra clothing

In colder weather, Merino wool retains warm air and circulates the air through the fibres, keeping you warm. Even a thin layer of wool can work wonders. 

So if that if sun dips, you won't have to put on extra clothing, giving you the most freedom for the longest time possible.

 5. Biodegradable

Choose natural performance.

Less of of feature, more of a statement, we believe in taking unnecessary plastics out of performance apparel and choose natural materials where we can.

Merino Wool is 100% biodegradable, breaking down harmlessly in soil and sea. The Merino Wool used in Dirbie products, is sustainably sourced from carefully selected humane-certified sheep farmers


Final note: The Softest Wool

Merino wool has exceptionally fine fibres, which make it the softest wool available.

You may have worn wool before, thought "hell, this is itchy" said thanks to your Grandma and placed the sweater in the back of the wardrobe. But Merino changes the game.

Here are the differences at a quick glance:

  • Traditional wool: Thick fibres make it warm. But it’s heavy, itchy and takes forever to dry
  • Synthetics: Plastic fibres make it lightweight and fast drying. But it’s clammy, very stinky and highly flammable.
  • Merino Wool: Thin fibres make it warm in cold weather, cooler in warm weather. It’s soft, light, breathable and doesn’t stink when you break a sweat.

Now that was a yarn about Merino Wool.
