Merino Wool Makes The Ideal College Clothes


by Col Forbin October 09, 2017

Earlier this month marked the beginning of the school year, both for first-time college and university students, and returning ones, and with the onslaught of assignments, papers, tests and labs that you might have to do, you don’t want to worry about your clothing. There’s the stereotype of the slovenly college student whose dorm is piled with dirty laundry, and while it’s easy to explain that away as just laziness, the truth is that there are just bigger things to worry about.


You don’t want to have to constantly attend to your clothing, which is where Unbound Merino clothing comes in, with its all-season, all-contexts, all-the-time appeal that means you can cut down your wardrobe and cut down your time spent in front of a washing machine, all while still looking awesome. Let’s look at a few key reasons why any college or university student should be stocking their closet and drawers with Merino wool clothes.


Minimalism

Albert Einstein once famously encouraged people to “make things as simple as possible, but no simpler”. In other words, pare down and organize yourself to the point where you function the best, but don’t go too far, otherwise you’ll end up oversimplifying yourself, left with nothing around which to function. You need clothes – that’s for certain – and, what’s more, you need clothes that will keep you warm or cool, depending on the context. Merino wool’s amazing ability to be both insulating and breathable means that it works as a catch-all garment, freeing up space in your closet, and in the process creating a minimalist space for you to think and study – simple, but no too simple. And fewer clothes means…



Less Washing

Nobody enjoys doing laundry, let alone when there are parties going on or tests to study for, or when there’s something just really good on Netflix you need to attend to. The vast majority of fabrics start to smell bad after a day or two of use, but Merino wool’s unique anti-microbial properties and sweat-wicking capabilities – that is, its ability to move moisture from your body to the surface of the clothes, to be evaporated – means that this wonder-wool can stay fresh and clean for many, many days. We’ve even tested our Merino wool t shirt by doing lots of sweat-producing activities over a number of days, but this fabric just doesn’t want to get dirty, making it ideal if you’re a runner, or if you just don’t like doing laundry. And not having to do as much laundry means that you…


Save Money in the Long Run

The fact that one of our garments can easily work in both cold climates and warm climates, coupled with the fact that you don’t have to make nearly as many trips to the Laundromat with it (even our Merino wool briefs stay clean for a number of days!), means that it will save you money. And saved money can be spent on all sorts of other fun things. Plus, its simple, timeless design means that you can dress it up for a party, or dress it down if you’re just going to grab a bite to eat. Less clothes needed – more money in your pocket.


To recap, Merino wool keeps you climate-regulated; it keeps you looking great wherever you are; and it keeps you from smelling for weeks at a time. These clothes are perfect for a lifestyle that demands a lot of attention and thought, a lifestyle that requires you to move from studying hard to partying hard without much respite. There’s an old saying around colleges and university: sleep, study, party – pick two. With any luck, with the time and money you save choosing Unbound Merino’s awesome wool clothing, you can do all three.
