Unlike other wool/synthetic blends on the market, Polartec Power
Wool is a highly engineered plated construction which precisely places
wool and synthetic yarns to achieve performance much greater than the
sum of the parts, effectively creating a layering system within a single
textile. Highly breathable Polartec Power Wool fabrics optimally place
naturally wicking, odor resistant, temperature-regulating high quality
merino wool next to skin with hydrophobic synthetic fibers on the
outside for shape retention, durability, and improved dry-times. The
resulting products more reliably manage the often-divergent demands of
many environments – hot or cold, wet or dry – for superior comfort and
Polartec Power Wool fabrics are currently available in multiple
styles, including primary next-to-skin, form-fitting stretch, and
patented grid construction based on Polartec’s original synthetic grid
fleece technology, Polartec® Power Dry® High Efficiency, which is now
called Polartec® Power Grid®.
The launch of Polartec Power Wool follows the introduction of
Polartec’s latest innovations, Polartec Alpha, the first-ever
breathable puffy insulation, and Polartec NeoShell, the most breathable
waterproof fabric on the market. For more information, please visit the
