About NuYarn

NuYarn is the result of a unique patented technology that enhances the way Merino performs. Traditionally spun yarns twist fiber for strength. Twisting exposes fiber ends which produce the prickle factor in wool fabrics. Twisting also squeezes out the natural air cushioning of wool and takes away the ability to modify fiber structure within the yarn. NuYarn utilises a core yarn and non-spun technology that creates unique fiber structures along and around the core. NuYarn’s ability to manipulate the direction of wool fibers within the yarn ensures that fiber ends are shaped in the same direction as the rest of the yarn so there are no prickly ends rubbing against the skin and allows it to preserve wool’s natural insulating air cushion creating an extremely soft yet durable yarn. NuYarn terry cushioned socks have been extensively tested by researchers at AgResearch Wool Research Organisation of New Zealand (WRONZ) accredited lab. The results: a “Blister Free Sock”.

About Merino Wool

New Zealand produces some of the best Merino wool in the world. Merino wool is much finer than traditional wool making it smooth against your skin and more comfortable to wear. With many more fibres contained in the fabric it traps more tiny air pockets and locks in body heat. Merino wool is highly breathable and it wicks moisture away from your body, releasing it into the air. This helps to regulate your temperature, keeping you warm in cold weather and cool in hot.

The natural properties of Merino wool make it odour resistant, another big advantage over synthetic fabrics. In very wet conditions, it will absorb up to a third of its weight in water without feeling clammy and retains some of its warmth even when very wet.
