The Rock N Wool range brings merino wool to life in a range of vivid colour ways, Ortovox market them towards freeriders and powder hounds, however we think everyone likes a little colour at the end of the day.
Ortovox Prees says the following:
MERINO WOOL FOR FREERIDING
Freeriding starts with the first layer of clothing, since this is what determines whether the overall clothing system
will work as expected. ORTOVOX trusts merino wool in every layer. This natural fiber is great in every season of
the year, but it is simply fantastic for winter sports when BODY TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATES between heavy
perspiration during periods of activity and rapid cooling when at rest. Merino wool has the unique ability to
ABSORB LARGE VOLUMES OF MOISTURE yet NOT FEEL WET. It transports moisture into the fiber core and then
slowly releases it. At the same time, it helps REGULATE TEMPERATURE and PREVENTS UNPLEASANT ODORS.
ORTOVOX takes advantage of 100% MERINO WOOL for the ROCK‘N‘WOOL collection. These products have a
material weight of 185 G/M², making them HIGHLY VERSATILE from the be-ginning of winter to the end, even
when temperatures take a dip. From short sleeves to long sleeves and from boxers to short pants, this collection
is characterized largely by COLORFUL DESIGNS, FUN FEATURES, LOOSE CUTS, and – of course – the highly
functional merino fiber.
THE NATURAL PARADISE OF TASMANIA
Incidentally, 100% of the merino wool from this collection comes from the Australian island of Tasmania. The wool
from this natural paradise is HIGH-QUALITY, THIN (18 microns), and TEAR-RESISTANT. But just as important for
ORTOVOX, the material is ETHICALLY and ECOLOGICALLY sound. We have very high expectations for the farmers.
A large portion of their working time is committed to ensuring sustainable farm management and animal
