Salty Dog is a winter cap in a classic fisherman beanie style. Extra Fine Merino wool is a very cozy and warm fabric which provides comfort even during wintry weather.
Wool obtained from Australian and New Zealand free-range animals is considered the best fabric in the world. It has an amazing ability to absorb moisture, to be exact it is capable to absorb around 30-35% of its weight. Merino wool wicks moisture incredibly well and keeps the skin dry even during intense activity. As it is very skin friendly it doesn't itch the skin. It has antibacterial properties and doesn't cause allergies. Merino wool offers a high UV protection.
Extra Fine Merino
To understand the uniqueness of this type of wool it is essential to know that the diameter and length are basic characteristics when it comes to the quality and use of this fabric. The diameter is measured in microns. A regular wool has fibers that are around 27 to 50 microns thick, human hair has around 45 to 100 microns, Extra Fine Merino fibers have a diameter of 18.6 to 19.5 microns!
That's why it is even more gentle and skin friendly.
