Ullfrotté Original is the material developed by Woolpower AB in Östersund in the early 1970’s in collaboration with the Swedish military, scientists, doctors and survival experts. The textile is highly wear resistant and consists of fine Merino wool, polyamide/polyester and air.

The material is knit so that one side is smooth, and the other has terry loops. The lofty terry loops, in combination with the crimp in the wool fibers, creates a knitwear capable of trapping a lot of air. Up to 80% of the material actually consists of air, which means that the material has an excellent capacity to trap body heat. The more air you can keep still around the body, the more heat you can retain.

Air does not to any large extent transport heat away from the body, but textiles do. Ullfrotté Original’s lofty knit has few contact points with the body, which reduces the number of points where body heat can be wicked away.

The permeable Ullfrotté Original material easily lets moisture escape from the body. As you become hot and you perspire, vapor pressure builds up inside your clothes. The moisture molecules strive to get outside where the air is colder and the pressure lower. If the material is loose and the fibers have the right properties, they will help transport moisture away from the body.

The soft terry knit surface of Ullfrotté Original can easily be worn on warm skin to maximize body heat retention, while simultaneously helping to wick perspiration away from the skin. Ullfrotté Original retains body heat, even when wet.

Merino wool is known as a very fine, soft and crimpy wool and is perfect for garments worn next to the skin. The wool used in Ullfrotté Original is 22 microns, meaning that the thickness of the wool fibers is 22 thousandths of a millimeter. This results in comfortable wool that is also strong.
