Summer of Kayaking in Denmark

Summer of Kayaking in Denmark

By ioMerino Outsider Jens

"What a summer! I've been kayaking along the coast of Zealand - the largest island of Denmark. Clearwater and a lot of sun - and due to a historically warm summer in Denmark, our biggest concern was the sun. From our self-made kayaks, or baidarkas, we experienced the beautiful nature and small towns along the coast.

 

Our red cap looks and feels like a regular cap, but delivers the thermo-regulating ‘insulation’ qualities of our merino wool garments!

 

I have also been working this summer, and luckily my work is outside and takes place in the beautiful scenery in the Norwegian mountains. Two times this summer, I've had the pleasure of guiding people around in Jotunheimen, a national park with over 80 mountains. An 8-day roundtrip with no re-supplying and every night in a tent. Most of the participants didn't have any experience with long hikes, and it was a pleasure to be the one who introduced the people to both the nature of Norway and how to "survive" on a long hiking trip. The purpose of the trips was also to fish in the streams and high-altitude lakes, and we caught a lot of small trout."

Fabric Guide

While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability. 

It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.

Ethically Made. Ethically Sourced. Perfectly Natural.
