Patagonia launches 'unique' baselayer

Written by Brett Mathews

CALIFORNIA - Patagonia has launched what it claims is the "most unique baselayer on the planet". The new garment from the US outdoor brand uses sustainably sourced wool from the grasslands of Patagonia and 100 per cent recycled-polyester yarns. The wool in the Merino Air Baselayer garment is treated using a special air-jet process which the company claims creates yarn of greater loft and insulation value than conventionally spun wool. The final stage of the process for the new product sees use of a computerised knitting machine whereby the lofted wool and 100 per cent recycled-polyester yarns are knit directly into a seamless performance fit garment – leading to minimal waste.
