Since its birth in 1994, Icebreaker has been pioneering the use of merino wool found in the wilderness, by the fusion of nature and technology. The merino is one of the world’s most ancient and toughest breeds of sheep.
Nature created Icebreaker merino wool as protection against the scorching summers and freezing winters of New Zealand’s rugged Southern Alps mountain range. Technology has allowed Icebreaker to adapted merino wool into a system of layers for the outdoors, performance sports, and the city.
Sustainability is at the heart of Icebreaker. They are not concerned with creating the latest technical fibre for their garments. Nature has already done it, without the use of oil rigs. Found in the mountains of New Zealand, Icebreaker fibre factory is that of a sheep’s back. By putting the environment before profit, Icebreaker have created a profitable sustainability through a balance of ecology and economy.
Icebreaker merino garments are soft and non-itch, warm in the cold and cool in the heat, they breathe to prevent clamminess, and have a miraculous ability to warn off odour. Icebreaker have adapted merino wool into a system of lightweight layers. Wear a next-to-skin layer in warmer weather, then layer up for insulation in the cold.
