Merino wool in underwear: stay fresh, dry and snug all day
Period undies are popping up on every corner, from supermarket shelves to big-brand stores, and as fierce advocates for accessible menstrual products, we’re cheering for more. But in a market flush with options, it’s easy to wind up on a never-ending (and costly) quest to find the perfect pair.
Ever wondered what sets sellout period underwear apart from the rest? It's all about the fusion between tech, fabric and comfort. Humble brag – our collection of period underwear uses merino wool and effortlessly ticks each box.
Let's explore why.
Before we dive in, what is merino wool?
Merino wool is a natural fibre produced by Merino sheep. Grown on farms across Australia, its texture is fine and silky (think: luxurious) that it is often compared to cashmere.
When it comes to types of wool, merino is gentle on our skin and kinder to our planet. Merino sheep grow new fleece each year, which is regularly sheared to generate a renewable supply of 100% biodegradable wool.
What's the buzz about using merino wool in underwear?
From glowing online reviews to humble endorsements over lunch, the talk about period underwear isn't going away. Newcomers can be sceptical, but seasoned customers know this to be true: the performance of your period underwear boils down to the lining, and if the lining is made of merino wool, you're on the right track.
Merino wool is beneficial in many ways:
- It wicks away moisture to effectively soak up period blood and other leakages.
- It absorbs odour and locks it away, releasing it when washed.
- It is breathable and quick drying which can stop a sweaty groin in its tracks.
Merino wool is also incredibly soft. In technical terms, merino wool is generally less than 22 microns (1 micron = 1 thousandth of a millimetre). A micron is the diameter of a thread, and the lower the micron, the softer and finer the fibre. For context, human hair is roughly 50-100 microns, so merino wool offers unbeatable softness and comfort without the itch you might experience from other fibres.
Considering the combined functionality and feel of a merino wool lining, why would you want anything less for your period underwear?
