Icebreaker Fabric Weight MerinoLOFT™


Icebreaker Outdoor/Travel Layers are a versatile system of interchangeable Merino layering pieces ranging from essential core garments to seasonal trend-driven styles you can wear across seasons and continents, either on their own or layered up when conditions get a bit cooler.

  • Next-to-skin/first layer and mid layer garments are soft and non-itch, temperature regulating, breathe to prevent clamminess, resist odour and on top of that are very easy to care for (including no need to iron) - just what you need when travelling. Wear them solo or layered up in cooler weather.
    • Cool-lite™ fabric has been added to the range and combines Merino wool and TENCEL®, a fibre made from sustainably produced plants, so bringing together two natural, low environmental impact fibres. The high natural moisture content of TENCEL® keeps you cool in the heat yet remains dry to the touch and is 60-70% cooler than Merino fabrics as well as having exceptional wicking abilities (50% more moisture absorbed than cotton and dries twice as fast as polyester).
    • Merino Corespun has been added as a breakthrough in durability. In this fabric a nylon core has been added for extra strength with Merino fibre wrapped around it for next-to-skin softness, temperature regulation and odour resistance.
  • Mid layers:
    • Sweaters are a versatile collection that has every occasion covered - from a hike in the hills to a night out on holiday. Layer sweaters over Icebreaker base layers and lightweight layers for instant warmth when the temperatures drop. Includes a stylish collection of exclusive knitwear made from an exceptionally fine micron of Merino wool, grown in New Zealand's rugged Southern Alps. The Merino is knitted into a fine gauge to create a stylish collection of exclusive knitwear, special garment features include raglan sleeves with fully-fashioned details, shoulder darts, ergonomic side seams for a superior fit, and ribbing at the hem, cuff and neckline.
    • RealFLEECE™ is Icebreaker's natural, luxurious, brushed Merino alternative to a synthetic fleece and offers instant warmth and luxury. The insulation-to-weight value is very high - super lightweight considering the insulation provided. RealFLEECE™ also has a very soft, luxurious fell thanks to its smooth, air-permeable jersey finish. The interior is a terry knit construction with the loft being brushed to create air pockets that trap air and retain body heat. Now reengineered to be lighter, warmer and stronger. A nylon core has been added to allow Icebreaker to brush even lighter weight fabrics increasing their insulation value yet keeping them thin and light. LYCRA® has also been added to improve the stretch and recovery of the garments making them Icebreaker's best fitting mid layers to date. So stylish, RealFLEECE™works as well in the city as it does in the outdoors.
    • RealFLEECE™Nano is RealFLEECE™combined with water resistant nano technology. Lightweight and low bulk, they're ideal for hiking and other outdoor activities. Water resistant nanotechnology is where tiny nanotechnology particles create a ridge surface that repels water, mud and oil bringing the added benefits of water resistance and stain resistance to garments
  • Outdoor Jackets completes the Outdoor/Travel Layers with an exciting range of urban styles. Warm as well as windproof, these soft, breathable jackets provide the ultimate protection against the elements. Some garments now have MerinoLOFT® insulation to combine with Merino and organic cotton or recycled polyester face fabric treated with a DWR (durable water resistant) finish for warmth and protection, as well as breathablility and odour control, in cold conditions. MerinoLOFT™: is the first ever down insulation to use the highly breathable and superior thermal retention of Merino wool - 10% of which is created from Icebreaker Merino scraps.


Icebreaker garments almost look after themselves as they don't hold moisture or odour. In fact, the known record for wearing an Icebreaker non-stop is 196 days in extreme conditions. Here are a few tips to get the best out of your Icebreaker.

  • Washing Instructions:
    • Use warm or cool machine wash on normal cycle with regular powder or liquid detergent, not wool detergent
    • For its first wash, wash the garment separately (after 2 to 3 days use) to remove any loose fibres and avoid pilling
    • Wash with like colours
    • Wash on a normal cycle with other hard fabrics (e.g. denim) to remove fluffing
    • Never use a fabric softener
    • Do not use detergents with bleach
    • Do not tumble dry - dry flat in the shade or on the clothes line

    Note: Hand washing can enable a residual build up of perspiration which could contribute to an odour problem.
