The HumBird [ Merino x Tencel Collection ] is made with jersey fabric. It has a fabric weight of 200gsm (grams per meter) and is an ideal material to use for year-round comfort. Both Merino and Tencel™ are known for their breathability, moisture management, anti-bacterial properties and being gentle on the skin. These materials are combined to make an outstanding fabric that is comfy and environmentally responsible.
More on Merino: Our merino is made using the Schoeller EXP method. EXP stands for “EX-Pollution", which describes its avoidance of pollutants during the anti-felting treatment process.
Merino jersey that is considered "easy care" (can be laundered without fulling) is traditionally processed with the use of chlorine and often coated in a polymer (plastic) finish.
In contrast, the EXP method uses salts to keep the wool ecological.
