The Aclima WoolNet Light Shirt keeps you warm but prevents overheating when working out hard. The wool-mesh also dries quicker than classical wool fabrics, is super soft, stretchy and does not smell like synthetic underwear does. The new lightweight version of the Aclima Woolnet can be used all year round for any kind of activity. »Over the last 20 years I have not tested any other shirt that offers such unique functionality«, one of the testers said.

PRIMARY INNOVATION FEATURES

INTENDED SPECIFIC END USE
High performance activities, such as running in the mountains, hiking and trekking.
Merino wool is a material with low weight, high insulation and comfort, that can be washed at low temperatures. Wool does not require as frequent wash as some other materials, it is less likely to start smelling after use. No odour-additives in the material, and no softeners required when washing to cover the smell of the garment. Oeko-Tex certified to ensure no harmful substances. Wool is a fibre with fantastic properties for the outdoors, and Aclima aim to replace plastic based fibre with wool where possible. Aclima garments must have purpose, function, durability and multiple uses. Aclima source the wool themselves, and work closely with the whole supply chain to follow the wool and production.
