Merino wool and silk leggings give maximum breathability while comfortably insulating against temperature extremes. Wool prevents bacteria from settling, which greatly reduces the buildup of odour caused by sweat. The added elastane reinforces the natural elasticity of the wool fibres and guarantees that they will retain their shape in movement.
Engel Sports is high-performance athletic wear made from certified organic merino wool and silk. This apparel line utilizes a new material made from superfine merino wool fibres that are only 17.5 microns thick and combined with silk. Certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
Fabric quality: Depending on the temperature these products are to be worn directly on the skin or as a mid or outer layer over the light quality. The silk content guarantees a higher tear resistance and gives a silky sheen and a very smooth and scratch-free feel.
Care: Hand or machine wash on a gentle cycle in warm water. Block to original shape and hang to dry. Merino wool regenerates by airing and therefore does not need to be washed so often - this saves energy, water and detergent.
Material: 70% Merino Wool/28% Silk/ 2% Spandex
