Icebreaker: It’s about our relationship with nature, and to each other
The merino is one of the world’s most ancient breeds of sheep. And one of the toughest. Very different to a regular sheep who chews grass in the lowlands, our merino live in the extremes of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. Regular sheep would freeze to death up there. But the merino’s fleece is built for extremes – breathable in summer, insulating in winter, yet exceptionally soft and lightweight. We’ve pioneered the use of merino wool in the wilderness since 1994, and now we are merino leaders and we’ve fused nature and technology to create great Icebreaker merino layers for the outdoors, for performance sports, and for the city.
Icebreaker uses the best Merino Wool. 100% nature. Sustainable and fashionable at the same time. Icebreaker merino to create the best thermal underwear, socks, essentials and functional outdoor clothing. Icebreaker is soft and non-itch, it’s warm in the cold and cool in the heat, it breathes to prevent clamminess, and it has a miraculous ability to warn off stinkiness – you can run a marathon and still smell as sweet as if you’ve spent the day on the sofa.
