Since 1994, Icebreaker has been crafting their versatile Merino wool fabric into hard-working technical clothes as well as sophisticated, high-performance urban apparel. Starting with underwear and baselayers and expanding to mid- and outer layers, Icebreaker outfits you for optimal four-season comfort. Whether you’re dressing for snow sports, hiking and backpacking, travel, running and fitness, or simply everyday activities, Icebreaker has you covered.
They trusted merino wool fiber to work – because nature had created it to ensure that merino sheep could thrive through freezing winters and scorching summers. Icebreaker continues to reengineer their products, currently combining Merino with other textiles to create new performance fabrics. For example, its wool-cotton blend garments are both durable and highly breathable. For outings in much cooler weather, Icebreaker offers jackets and vests that feature insulating Merino backed with weather-resistant outer shells.
Did you know that when you buy an Icebreaker product, you can use the “Baacode” tag on the inner seam to trace its production from start to finish? You can see the living conditions of the sheep, meet the growers who raised them, and follow the production process through to the finished garment.
One of our favourite aspects about the Icebreaker Merino organisation, is their commitment to supporting environmental sustainability and responsible sourcing. It has incredibly high standards for environmental management and animal welfare from its growers, all of whom are contracted long-term to Icebreaker. Once harvested, the wool is processed in facilities that strictly observe rigorous standards for environmental impact and human welfare.
