The “secret” formula
We took a traditional natural material and added our know-how to the making of the product. This is why in addition to merino wool, the composition of the garments also contains carbon, polypropylene, polyamide and elastane.
Position of materials
We wanted the comfort of the product when worn to be the same as that of the other products making up the SIXS catalog.
For this reason we decided to put polypropylene inside, in direct contact with the skin, and keep the merino wool (known to be a bit rougher and bristlier than other yarns) outside.
The wool has heat regulation properties that are superior to any other natural fiber, and it acts as a barrier against cold.
Polypropylene, on the other hand, is a hydrophobic yarn, meaning it does not absorb liquids and optimally manages perspiration. Finally, carbon helps regulate heat, improves body microcirculation, and is bactericidal (fights bad odors) and antistatic.
