TWICE AS SUSTAINABLE, TWICE AS COOL
Comfortable, durable merino shirt with cooling effect for warm summer days. Strong, robust and twice as cool: Thanks to its durable yarn and natural cooling effect, this t-shirt is perfect for hot summer days in the mountains – and it also contributes to saving one of the oldest rainforests in the world. The 150 COOL LEAVES TS is dedicated to the Tarkine, a primeval forest in North West Tasmania that covers almost 495,000 hectares and is under severe threat from large-scale deforestation for the mining and timber industries. For every t-shirt purchased we donate 5% to the Bob Brown Foundation, which is committed to the conservation of this rainforest.
- Cooling effect thanks to sustainable natural fibres
- Moisture regulating and quick drying
- Rugged and long lasting
- With BETA-SPUN technology, fine polyamide filaments are spun around a core of merino wool and Tencel®, giving the 150 COOL LEAVES T-SHIRT its resistance to tearing and abrasion. And the fine merino fibers have a temperature and moisture regulating effect, while Tencel® fibers ensure great evaporative coolness when things get hot.
150 MERINO COOL
In the 150 MERINO COOL line, ORTOVOX combines TencelTM fibres, sourced from sustainable forestry, with merino wool. The wood fibres are characterized by great evaporative coolness and flat fibre surface – ensuring it cools automatically. An intricate spinning process makes the material mix robust and extremely functional. BETA-SPUN technology refers to a manufacturing process where fine polyamide fibres are spun around merino wool and TencelTM. The protective polyamide sheathing means the fabric is exceptionally scuff-resistant and robust – without sacrificing the benefits of merino fibres or the cooling TencelTM fibres.
ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE (OWP)
Merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear since 1995. The focus of this has always been the protection of people, animals and nature: Their merino wool comes from selected farms that comply with their own wool standard: the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE. These farms are regularly monitored within the framework of the OWP to ensure that the highest standards of animal welfare are maintained. The OWP is our commitment to fair wool.
