A wicking fabric baselayer is an essential piece of kit for any outdoor activity and when worn next to your skin merino wool, a natural fibre, is simply the best. However Artilect has gone one step further and created a fabric called Nuyarn which has all the properties of Merino wool but even better! Unfortunately because of the way Merino wool is spun and twisted it loses its shape pretty quickly and is prone to getting holes and often takes longer to dry than synthetic materials. Nuyarn is a patented twist free yarn that boasts the following qualities:
5x Faster Drying Time30% Less Raw Materials35% More Stretch35% More Loft (less weight)50% More Durable53% Less Wind PermeableNaturally Odour Resistant
Artilect is created in Boulder, Colorado by a "team of innovators and rule-breakers in a relentless pursuit of progress to inspire a community of intrepid explorers to discover our world and seek new heights"! Like The Walking Hub they believe that sustainability is not optional. They keep their environmental footprint as small as possible and their products are expected to last 3.3 times longer than conventional merino. The wool used in Nuyarn is only sourced from farmers practicing ethical animal welfare. 100% is certified non-mulesed and comes from open range sheep shorn annually.
