7 Reasons Why You Want Wool for Working Out

There are a lot of misconceptions about wool still flying around in the outdoor world: rumors that it’s hot, scratchy, or generally uncomfortable. However, these assumptions are the farthest thing from the truth. People in cold climates have worn sheep’s wool clothing for centuries. Now, modern technologies allow manufacturers like Minus33 to create new fabrics out of this time-honored material that can stand up to warm weather and cold weather alike.

The Welcoming Words of Wool in Warm Weather

Over the course of the past few months, I have been upgrading my wardrobe to be more up-to date and comfortable by adding new pieces of clothing. One thing I have learned, is love is merino wool. I am, as described by Minus33, becoming a ­Merinoholic (someone addicted to wool). When I was very young (dating myself here) my mother used to dress me in a wool outer suit to play outside in the New Hampshire winters.

Kyle Merinoholics Merino Wool in the Workplace

Merino Wool in the Workplace

A lot of my time is spent outdoors doing the things I love, hunting and fishing being the primary activities. However, I spend a lot of my time at work as well, 8-12 hours days stuck inside not being able to get outside, some days until the sun hits the trees. One benefit of my Minus33 gear is its ability to adapt to the workplace and help me stay comfortable during the day.READ MORE

Why the Go-To Layers for Police are Wool

Why the Go-To Layers for Police are Wool

During the winter months, I often get asked about what I do to stay warm at work. As a police officer, there is a strong likelihood that I will be out of the vehicle for extended periods of time without the opportunity to duck out of the cold and get warm. I have been provided with some of the necessary gear to assist with this, however, as someone suffering from Raynaud’s Disease, the basic gear does not cut it for me. If I get cold, I lose the dexterity in my extremities, starting with my fingers and toes. With this job, that just can’t happen.READ MORE
