After the success of my Organic Apparel post, I found out about a start up company that aims to make a full line of sportswear made from 100% Merino Wool. That’s right, wool. Sustanable, organic, fire-resistant, water-repellent, moisture wicking, body temperature-regulating wool. Sounds like everything you’d ever want in active wear, right? (Fellow Irish dancers take note! These would be perfect to wear around those always-chilly feis venues!).
Grunard Apparel is currently crowd funding pre-orders for their first product, a classic hoodie, and they have plans for an extended line of men’s and women’s gear down the road. I’m hoping for fitted racer-back tanks and leggings in the near future! During the backing period, which runs until October 26, you can pre-order the revolutionary hoodie for half off. You know how I love a good deal…
For more details on the product, the crowd funding page really lays it all out nicely. And make sure to watch their creative and funny video. You gotta love when companies know how to have a sense of humor.
What do you think of wearing wool performance wear? Would you try it?
