Why wool?

8/12/20211 min read

Clothing creases and bad smells are everyday problems that we have to face. There are solutions, but not all of them are right. Ordinary cotton clothes may quickly deteriorate, crumple, and need daily washing or ironing. On the other hand, synthetic fibers can help with the smell and rarely wrinkle, but frequent wearing may cause allergies or affect the lymphatic system. Scary, right?

When AlbumLeo was just an idea, we sought to create clothing for cyclists that offered a comfortable solution to these problems. We researched viscose, silver yarn, and various chemicals for fibers, but none of them provided satisfactory results. That's when we turned to medical representatives of several countries who pointed us towards virgin merino wool.

Merino wool has thinner fibers, making the fabric softer and smoother than ordinary wool. Its flexibility and elasticity also make it more durable than other wool fabrics. Apart from that, it has natural antibacterial and moisture-wicking properties, making it perfect for sportswear.

At AlbumLeo, we strive to provide our customers with high-quality clothing that is not only stylish but also functional. That's why we choose virgin merino wool as our shirts' material.

Try it for yourself, and we guarantee that you will fall in love with the comfort and durability of our products!
