why merino wool
Minus33 Merino Wool regulates the amount of moisture on your skin by absorbing any moisture or sweat on your body. Then, the absorbed moisture evaporates out of the fabric into the atmosphere.
Merino Wool fibers naturally reject any bacteria in moisture or sweat as it is wicked away, so foot fungus and smelly odor will not be a problem while wearing our products.
Insulates When Wet
Wool will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet or clammy. If you do get wet, wool will insulate you better than cotton or polyester materials.
Merino Wool insulates against high temperatures and does not readily catch fire. If it does, it self-extinguishes. When Merino burns, it doesn’t melt and stick to the skin like synthetic fabrics do.
Don’t worry about sunburn on a sunny day summiting a peak. Lightweight layers have a UPF rating of 25. Midweight and Expedition have a UPF rating of 50+.
Merino Wool has a low environmental footprint and naturally returns to the elements. Shear a merino sheep in the morning, and in the afternoon they’re happily nibbling their way towards renewing next season’s clip.
MACHINE WASH AND DRY
Total Easy Care (TEC) Merino apparel is designed for today's busy lifestyle. Total Easy Care Merino garments are all machine-washable, and are suitable for tumble drying.
Even after frequent laundering they retain an 'as new' appearance. They won't shrink, lose their shape, fade or color-bleed. They remain soft and comfortable for the life of the garment.
There's a bit of a squeeze for me, but not enough to hurt. I love the colors and the warmth. Next time I'm layering four layers of head gear, this will be on the bottom.
Thank you for your feedback! We're glad you're enjoying the headband and appreciate your honest feedback.

I love these headbands, they’re so versatile and my go to for winter runs! I also Love them on hikes when I want to let my head vent but need to keep my ears warm. Highly recommend!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!
I love the properties of merino wool, but some of it (from other manufacturers) makes me itchy. This headband does not. I found it warm enough for winter runs in the 20s (F). My one critique is that it's a bit too wide, but not so wide that it can still cover my ears if I fold it in half. It would be perfect if it were about 2/3 its current width. That's a small quibble, though. It's great.
What a great headband. Soft and comfortable, covers my ears and stays in place on hikes. Perfect alternative to the beanie I got. The stretch is perfect, keeps it in place while not squeezing my head too much. Aside from function the colors are great and I like the look!
Thank you Robert for the review!
