We developed this range for all athletic ski tourers. The thin material consists of a mix of fine merino fibers on the inside and a protective shell on the outside. We have placed windproof elements in certain zones in order to prevent cooling in sensitive areas.
Uncompromising sustainability! We have insulated the new generation of our Swisswool jackets with a homogenous layer of fair-trade Swiss virgin wool (150 g/m²), keeping you warm even at low temperatures. The nylon outer layer is also windproof and water-resistant.
The products in our Swisswool Light series were developed for active mountain sports, where good insulation performance and low weight are key. The 90g/m² lining made of Swiss wool isn’t just super sustainable, it can also be packed away extremely well.
It doesn’t get much more technical than this. Lined with 60g/m² Swiss wool, the Swisswool Light Tec series is the thinnest, but also the most technically advanced Swisswool range. The products in this series can be compacted and packed away particularly well. Equipped with stretch inserts, they are perfect for athletic alpinists.
The best merino wool of all time! Using a unique manufacturing process, we spin microscopically fine merino fibers around a nylon core, thus combining the best qualities of an artificial fiber with the natural functionality of Tasmanian merino wool.

Pure merino wool for anyone who likes it colorful! The merino wool fibers are produced in the natural paradise of Tasmania and, at 18 microns, are so delicate that we can’t even feel them.

The evergreen from Tasmania. The 185 g/m², thin underwear range from nature’s garden is perfect for mountain sports use 365 days a year.

In our world, no material is better suited than wool for ensuring warm fingers in the fight against the cold. It has the excellent quality of drawing moisture away from the skin and storing it in its fiber core, while the outside of the fiber remains dry! The result is comfort – even in the wet, icy cold!
Our traditional range, hardly changed since 1988. The reason is simple: Thousands of enthusiastic mountaineers, a lot of summit successes on high mountains, and consistently warm fingers. Produced in a small factory in Austria, the Classic Wool range includes some of our most popular wool products.
