The 185 MERINO PRINT long-sleeved shirt is made of 100% pure Tasmanian merino wool with an average fineness of 18 microns. A primordial, boundless land, natural sources of food and a nearly 200-year old merino tradition – no wonder Tasmanian merino wool offers such incomparable softness and functionality. This long-sleeved shirt with its cool print on the chest is an absolute must for every tour!
THE NATURAL PARADISE OF TASMANIA
100% of the merino wool from this collection comes from the Australian island of Tasmania. The wool from this natural paradise is high-quality, thin (18 microns at ORTOVOX), and tear-resistant. But just as important for us, this material is ethically and ecologically sound. We have very high expectations of the farmers. A large portion of their working time is committed to ensuring sustainable farm management and animal welfare.
Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
