comazo|protect, with over 135 years of experience in textiles and workwear and protective underwear, has repeatedly discovered that nature often provides the best answer to protect oneself from cooling or frostbite in extreme temperatures. According to the teachings of bionics, in the field of cold protection, an animal also shows us how best to ward them off. The merino sheep.
The Merino sheep is one of the oldest sheep breeds in the world and is therefore one of the most resistant in terms of “survival of the fittest.” In contrast to normal sheep, which we are probably more familiar with, Merino sheep do not graze in the lowlands, but are at home in the high alpine areas of New Zealand or Australia. There, radical cold and energetic winds reign in winter. In summer, on the other hand, there can be strong sunshine and unbearably hot temperatures. Normal sheep would have no chance of surviving here. Merino sheep, however, have adapted to the extreme conditions. In summer, the fur helps the skin to breathe and in winter, it protects against the icy cold. We at comazo|protect apply the benefits of merino wool in our thermal collection.
The natural wool we process becomes a high-tech fiber!
Different cell constructions, multiple cell membranes, orthoscopic cell rinds and the helix structure of the thermotextiles guarantee a high heat retention. The multidimensional knitting method used by comazo|protect in thermal underwear creates space for air pockets between the skin and merino wool. The protein substance within the individual cell fibers stores heat, insulates and prevents the beneficial heat from being conducted away from the body. However, should sweating nevertheless occur at high minus temperatures, merino wool fascinates with its fast-acting moisture absorption. The wool fiber can absorb up to 33% moisture without feeling wet. If the sweat accumulates into large drops inside the membrane, it is immediately passed on to the next layer of clothing.
The thermal underwear is noticeably soft on the skin. Wool as a natural, renewable raw material does not scratch and is easy to care for.
