Fabrics used in our base layer garments

The different types of fabric used in our base layer clothing production are carefully chosen to create the best options for performance wear.

Polyester is very commonly used in athleisure wear. And not without reason. The fabric is highly durable, and moisture is easily transported. The breathability and lightness of weight ensure a base layer with superior performance features keeping the fabric relatively dry during sweat inducing activities.

A blend of polyester and wool will combine the benefits of the two types of fabric. This combination will contain antimicrobial and heat retaining features from the wool. The polyester strengthens the wool and lengthens its durability.

100% merino wool in the base layer garments provides the wearer with comfort due to its natural breathability, insulation, and odor resistance. Merino wool is very capable of balancing the temperature of the wearer. Wool is classified as merino if the fibers are less than 24 microns in diameter. This provides the fabric with a smoother and more comfortable feel.

The three-layer principle for optimal clothing

It is essential for suppliers of outdoor clothing to have a product range containing all three layers of clothing; the base layer clothing, mid layer clothing, and outer layer clothing. With these three layers customers will be rightfully equipped to participate in different types of outdoor activities.

The purpose of the base layer is mainly the removal of moisture. A mid layer will help insulating, and maintaining a warm temperature, and an outer layer will act as a shell to protect the wearer from the elements.

As a highly specialized manufacture of outdoor clothing and other functional garments we develop and produce designs of all three clothing layers.
