Why Merino Wool

When creating Unbound we worked collaboratively with some of the best manufacturers of cottons, wools and technical fibers in the world.

Here's why we chose Merino as the perfect material for travel: 

It doesn’t smell: Merino wool is naturally antibacterial and odor-resistant. It quickly pulls sweat away from your body and allows it to evaporate into the air. That means you’ll rarely have to wash it. You can travel for weeks without ever having to launder a single Unbound t-shirt.

It regulates your temperature: Merino Wool is simultaneously breathable and insulating. That means it excels above cottons or synthetics when keeping you warm or cool.

It dries really fast: This has two benefits. First, if you get caught in the rain while traveling, you’ll be dry and comfortable before you know it. Second, and most important, a quick hand wash in the sink will refresh your clothing, and you’ll be ready to move quickly.

It doesn’t wrinkle: Merino wool is naturally wrinkle-resistant because of the properties of its fibers. That means you can stuff it into your backpack and never worry about wrinkly shirts.

The benefits of our Merino wool go far beyond travel. Having less (but better) clothing will not only simplify your life abroad, it will also add simplicity to your life at home.  


Here are just some of the things that will happen when you Live Unbound:

You’ll have less laundry to do.

Your laundry machine will be lonelier than ever. With a wardrobe full of clothing that rarely needs to be washed, you’ll save time, money and energy.

It’s one less thing to think about.

There’s an endless amount of decisions to be made from the second you wake up.  Spend less time deciding what to wear in the morning, so you can keep focused on the things that really matter.

You’ll always look great.

In a perfect world, you would be wearing your favorite clothing every day. Unbound lets you live in that world. Clothing that doesn’t go through the wash cycle with every wear keeps its form and fit. It’s like the first time you put it on, every time. 

You’ll own clothing with real value.

A lot of clothing purchased today is more or less disposable. It’s designed to deteriorate after a few wears. While it may seem to be a cheaper option with the initial purchase, it ends up costing more over time. Not to mention the human and environmental cost. Having a few items that last long creates more value in the long run and is a better way to live.
