Where does Merino wool come from?

Merino wool is a purely natural product. However, there are clear differences in quality here too. Because we care about your well-being and that of the Merino sheep, we fulfill all of them ALPIN LOACKER Merino products meet the highest quality standards.

We only use certified Merino wool from trusted suppliers

  • New Zealand,
  • South Africa,
  • Argentina
  • and the Falkland Islands.

Our Merino sportswear and functional underwear are produced 100% ecologically and therefore completely free of harmful substances in accordance with strict guidelines.

We also consistently reject the use of mulesing. These painful practices are in no way consistent with our values. Because the well-being of people, animals and the environment is our mission.

Our merino wool is certified multiple times:

  • (ZQ seal)

What makes Merino so special?

Once you have enjoyed functional underwear made from Merino, you will never want to wear anything else again. You can feel the full potential of the natural product particularly well directly on your skin.

Merino wool is:

  1. Temperature regulating: It cools in summer and warms in winter.

  2. Antibacterial: Your textiles made from this unique fiber do not absorb any odors thanks to the natural self-cleaning function. These are simply released back into the air. You can save on unnecessary luggage, especially on tours lasting several days.

  3. Fast drying: The natural fiber absorbs moisture and directs it to the outside. Since Merino wool dries in the air in no time, you won't sweat.

  4. Soft and non-scratchy: The high level of comfort comes from the fineness of the individual fibers.

  5. Light: Merino wool is finer and has a shorter staple than conventional wool. This also makes it many times lighter.

Why are Merino shirts so suitable for hiking?

Comfort and functionality come first, especially when hiking. Who wants to freeze or sweat? And the clothing shouldn't chafe, scratch or smell, right?

All of this will come with you ALPIN LOACKER Merino T-shirts for men and women don't happen. On the contrary! You are guaranteed to feel limitless, free and carefree.

How sustainable is merino wool?

One thing first: Merino wool is not sustainable per se. This requires the highest level of purity, quality and animal welfare. We guarantee you that our
Functional underwear made from Merino and all other products meet these criteria.

We consistently avoid the use of crude oil and chemicals in production. You will never find mulesing with us either.

Mulesing is used to boost wool production. The sheep are cruelly mutilated. In our opinion, this practice completely violates animal protection law.

We consistently reject such ways of dealing with living beings. Instead, we rely on real sustainability:

  • by avoiding chemicals,
  • CO₂-neutral production
  • and the use of certified Merino wool from loving and reputable farmers.

We source our wool from a renowned importer whose merino wool is subject to the ZQ seal. The seal ensures compliance with the highest international standards.

Does Merino scratch your skin?

No. In contrast to conventional wool, Merino does not scratch the skin. Merino wool is particularly fine and elastic. When it comes into contact with the skin, the fibers in the merino underwear bend and nestle gently. This ensures a particularly high level of comfort.

Can I wear Merino clothing in all seasons?

Yes! Even if it sounds paradoxical at first: functional underwear and a trekking shirt made of Merino are also suitable for hiking in summer. This is primarily due to the temperature-regulating properties of the natural fiber.

  • In summer it cools
  • and in winter Merino provides cozy warmth.

How do I find the right size?

So that you can enjoy all the positive properties, you should wear merino underwear and your merino shirt relatively close to your body when hiking.

If you are unsure when selecting the size, you will find a detailed size description and corresponding cut information for each product.

At what temperatures can the Merino functional underwear be used? ALPIN LOACKER wash?

Our functional underwear and Merino clothing from Austria can be easily washed (without shrinking) at 30 degrees on a delicate or wool cycle. Use wool detergent for this.

After shaking out, you should hang up Merino wool textiles and NOT tumble dry them! It's guaranteed to arrive there.
